Calculations for High Explosive Formulations (CHEF) - Version 8.0

$100.00

SOFTWARE WE CAN RUN FOR YOU-Many small companies mix ingredients to provide the user with emulsions, water gel, and heavy ANFO types of explosives. This software provides thermodynamic calculations, to easily determine optimum mixtures of ingredients, and calculates the oxygen balance for explosive mixtures, detonation velocity, temperatures and pressures for Detonation State and Explosion State. It also has the ability to calculate the temperature and pressure, which result from decoupled charges. This is the Expansion State and it provides useful information when charge volumes are smaller than borehole volumes or charge diameters are smaller than borehole diameters.  This is the only proven method available to do these calculations.

Delay Selector - Version 8.0 ¡En Español tambien!

$100.00

SOFTWARE WE CAN RUN FOR YOU-The Delay Selector software is a unique program that enables the operator to select the proper millisecond delay time to accomplish specific effects in blasting. Delay times are dependent on many factors, some of which are rock type, rock structure, burden, spacing and the overall effects one wants to achieve. There is no simple general solution if one wants to optimize production. The delay times are calculated from hole to hole along a row and between rows. By selection of the proper delay time, one can enhance wall control, reduce flyrock, increase fragmentation and decrease vibration. Proper timing can also control many other parameters. The Delay Selector program allows the user to prioritize the most important blast effects and select delay times based on the blast performance he needs. The Delay Selector program can be used in conjunction with Blast Designer and Pattern Designer to fully evaluate or design efficient blasts.

Vibration Assistant - Version 8.0

$150.00

SOFTWARE WE CAN RUN FOR YOU-This program does everything described below for Vibration Consultant; and offers other unique features. It helps the user determine if the vibration is at normal expected levels or if levels are much higher than anticipated. The program automatically puts an asterisk next to the data to show the user it is time to re-evaluate the blasting procedure. The user then has the choice to either use this data in further analysis, or to disregard the data from the analysis. The data will remain within the data file, but will not be used for calculation since it is an abnormality and not something that is normally occurring. If both the blast and monitoring coordinates are considered, the program automatically calculates the distance from the blast as well as the azimuth from the blast to the seismograph. This helps to maintain accurate distances between monitoring points, and to exactly locate monitoring points for future reference. The program allows the use of data from all three components; vertical, radial, transverse as well as peak vector sum. One can run an analysis using the data from any of these three components, the vector sum, or the program can automatically select the maximum vibration level from any of the three components.

Vibration Consultant - Version 8.0 ¡En Español tambien!

$100.00

SOFTWARE WE CAN RUN FOR YOU-This program performs a linear regression of blast vibration data and will predict peak particle velocity at any distance from the blast based on actual field data. The software will produce a table showing the maximum charge-per-delay for various distances to achieve a specified maximum vibration level. One has the choice of printing graphs of peak particle velocity versus scaled distance, peak particle velocity versus frequency and charge weight per delay versus distance. The program also performs a linear regression analysis of air overpressure and plots air overpressure versus scaled distance. The program will predict overpressure values at any distance from the blast.
