· Vesicular basalt is a darkcolored volcanic rock that contains many small holes, more properly known as vesicles. A vesicle is a small cavity in a volcanic rock that was formed by the expansion of a bubble of gas that was trapped inside the lava. Sometimes, vesicles can become filled in with secondary minerals, such as calcite, quartz, or zeolites.

What are blast fumes? Blasting is used to break up solid rock in open cut mines and quarries. Blast fumes are the gases that may be generated during blasting. Some of the gases are toxic and some are not. In terms of health impacts, the critical gases generated are oxides of nitrogen (NOx) nitrogen dioxide (NO. 2) and nitric oxide (NO).
At present, the drilling and blasting pattern is typically based on the dimensions of the crosssection to be opened lopez jimeno et al2017 rather than on the geological and geotechnical characteristics of a highly heterogeneous volcanic rock found on the island of.
This paper compares blasting damage depth in layered jointed basalt before and after grouting. First, a method of determining blasting damage depth in layered jointed basalt is proposed, with a thorough theoretical analysis, and the improvement effect of grouting on damage control in the layered jointed basalt is evaluated quantitatively.
· It has been reported that RhoA activation and Rho‑kinase (ROCK) expression are increased in chronic hypoxic lungs, and the long‑term inhibition of ROCK markedly improves the survival of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). However, whether Rho‑kinase α (ROCK2) participates in regulation of the growth of pulmonary arterial endothelial cells (PAECs) remains .
· The prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was 14% in the tunnel workers compared with 8% in the reference subjects. CONCLUSION Exposure to dust and gases from diesel exhaust, blasting, drilling and rock transport in tunnel work enhances the risk for accelerated decline in FEV 1, respiratory symptoms, and COPD in tunnel ...

In the proposed model, effect of an elemental charge in the charge column is calculated and then summed up for the whole charge column. Thus, it is assumed that blast waves from all the elemental charges of charge column reached at the point of interest at same time. This can be helpful in assessing the extent of blastinduced rock
pe rock mass, SRM) is assessed based on the derived reference rock mass parameters, taking into consideration both the method of excavation and the effect of weathering (Hack, 1998; Lindsay et al., 2001; Hack, 2002; Hack et al., 2003). The excavatability of rocks is of importance for the selection of sui
Objectives Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and silicosis are associated with exposure to crystalline silica. We determined the exposure to respirable crystalline silica and estimated exposure–response relationships between cumulative exposure and pulmonary function in outdoor rock drillers. Methods 136 rock drillers and 48 referents were recruited from three heavy construction ...
· The parting rock is mainly compact basalt. Blasting was carried out in two rounds in a controlled manner,, by limiting the maximum charge per delay based on ground vibration monitoring. Ground vibration generated with free face (in second round) has been modeled and a new ground vibration propagation equation is proposed for tunnel blasting including the effect of an extra free face.
