Evaluation of Safe Explosive Charge in Surface Mines using Artificial Neural Network

Manoj Khandelwal

Abstract

The present paper mainly deals with the prediction of maximum explosive charge used per delay (QMAX) using artificial neural network (ANN) incorporating peak particle velocity (PPV) and distance between blast face to monitoring point (D). 150 blast vibration data sets were monitored at different vulnerable and strategic locations in and around major coal producing opencast coal mines in India. 124 blast vibrations records were used for the training of the ANN model vis-à-vis to determine site constants of various conventional vibration predictors. Rest 26 new randomly selected data sets were used to test, evaluate and compare the ANN prediction results with widely used conventional predictors. Results were compared based on coefficient of correlation (R) and mean absolute error (MAE) between calculated and predicted values of QMAX.
