Abstract : The objectives of the study reported herein were to study the underground transmission of shock from a row-charge cratering detonation and to evaluate the effect of such a detonation on adjacent charge emplacement holes. The results of the gage measurements showed that the two instrument holes nearest the detonation were stressed beyond their elastic limits whereas the remaining three instrument holes survived and could have been used for later charge emplacement.
