Abstract
AN EXTENSIVE REVIEW WILL BE MADE OF LITERATURE ON TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENTS OR INNOVATIVE METHODS OF EXPLOSIVE EXCAVATION. THIS REVIEW WILL IDENTIFY ANY PROMISING CONCEPTS FOR REDUCING TIME REQUIRED OR IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY IN DRILLING FOR BLASTS, LOADING BLAST HOLES, CHARGE DESIGN, VENTILATION AND FUME REMOVAL, AND MUCKING. THE GOAL OF THE STUDY IS TO IDENTIFY THOSE CONCEPTS WHICH MIGHT BE INTEGRABLE INTO THE POST ATTACK EGRESS SYSTEM FOR A DEEP UNDERGROUND BASE. IF SUCH IMPROVEMENTS CAN BE MADE, THEY COULD LEAD TO EXPLOSIVE EXCAVATION AS A SUPPLEMENT OR ALTERNATIVE TO TUNNEL BORING MACHINES. A FINAL REPORT WILL PRESENT THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF CANDIDATE CONCEPTS.
