ABSTRACT

This paper presents the estimation of ground vibration parameters induced by
blasting excavations realized at eight different sites located close to the residential
areas. Within the scope of this study, in order to predict peak particle velocity and
determine the slope of the attenuation curve for eight sites, ground vibration
components were measured for all blast events over a long period. During the study,
while the parameters of scaled distance were recorded carefully, the ground vibration
components were measured by suitable monitors for the all blast events of eight
blasting sites. At the end of evaluation of the data pairs, an empirical relation, which
gives average line at 95% confidence level and upper bound 95% prediction line with
a good correlation coefficient was established and suggested for each site.
