"blast induced vibrations"

The proposal of a simplified hybrid Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical model to investigate poroelastic and thermoelastic stresses induced due to water injection and the different parameters affecting their evolution is presented. The operating mode of the numerical model is starting with a set of implicit fractures, with different adjustable random orientations, then an elastic continuum medium is built, and shear...

The paper presents the results of an experimental campaign carried out at the Sasso Poiano mine, close to Varese, northern Italy. The area is near a historic site, inhabited villages and a well-known lake, so that the use of explosive is subject to severe restrictions imposed by Italian standards. The exploitation is therefore carried out by blasting with low specific charge (PF=50 g/m3) in order to obtain...

The aim of this study is to investigate the possible correlation between the value of occupational risk from whole body vibrations and the main anthropometric characteristics of the subjects exposed to such vibrations. Directive 2002/44/EC, which defines the minimum requirements in order to guarantee the health and safety of workers exposed to such a risk, states that Risk Assessment may be conducted...

In recent years, the village of Colsano in the Venosta Valley has witnessed the recurring phenomenon of rock mass collapse. Large blocks from past landslides are still visible on the edge of the valley. The investigation has brought to light the presence of a strongly disintegrated rocky ridge, within a larger and more complex area, strongly disturbed by the presence of a Deep-Seated Gravitational Deformation of the Slope (DSGSD) still studied and examined in depth. The analysis of the kinematisms, in addition to the geological and geomechanical...

This paper illustrates the geological-technical problems encountered in the design and construction of the Küchelberg road tunnel, which constitutes the second completion lot of the Merano bypass in the province of Bolzano, and in particular the characteristics of the specifically developed monitoring system. The tunnel layout runs in an urban environment with low overburden for approximately 2 km in two clearly distinct geological conditions that affect approximately 50% of the tunnel: the Merano side (west) in alluvial soils, the Passirio side...

CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title.
CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a range of four years (e.g. 2016-2019) to peer-reviewed documents (articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters) published in the same four calendar years, divided by the number of these documents in these same four years (e.g. 2016 —19).
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
2019: 1.307
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)
2019: o.657
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal's impact.
Journal Metrics: CiteScore: 1.0 , Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.381 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.163
