Editorial Reviews

Dowding expands his earlier Blast Vibration Monitoring and Control to transfer advances in earthquake engineering, nuclear blast protective design, and construction and mine blasting to the entire field of construction-induced vibrations, from piling to explosive demolition to blast densification of sands. He traces the transfer through simplified physical concepts and models, together with a synthesis of experiments conducted to establish criteria for safe, frequency-based vibration controls. Includes some 120 example questions, with answers and explanations, and a guide to the use of analytical software provided free over the Internet. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
