ABSTRACT

The inconsistency of use of the spherical charge formula for definition of a ground displacement velocity caused by a cylindrical charge explosion is shown. The results of experimental researches of intensity of ground fluctuations at a vertical cylindrical charge explosion are given and the formulas for definition of a ground displacement velocity for the body and the surface waves in various grounds at the lengthened charge explosion are received. The influence of constructed features of a cylindrical charge on parameters of seismic-exploding waves is investigated.
