dc.description.abstract▪ The underground explosions such as mining or accidental explosions in the storages of gas, liquid or explosive, produce energy release for very short time. The propagation of the waves is in spherical direction, which velocity depends of the density of the medium passing through. Starting from the centre of explosion and going far away, the velocity of the waves decreases. Also, entering in softer soil, the velocity of the waves could drastically decrease. In that case, the effect of the explosion to surrounding structures could be different.en_GB
dc.description.abstract▪ The methodology for definition of seismic effects to the structures such as residential buildings is described in this data sheet. The methodology is based on experimental measurements of the velocity of the seismic waves on the ground surface along the profiles of several hundred meters in direction radial to the source of the explosion.en_GB
