Case Study

Measuring Blast Wave Energy


Students and researchers at The Colorado School of Mines used an imaging technique called shadowgraphy to measure the blast waves created by a electric detonator.  The team compared a fluid-desensitized oil and gas detonator to a standard mining and construction detonator. The shadowgraphy technique allows them to image the otherwise invisible shock wave. Download the full case study to learn more.
