Abstract : Ground-motion data are presented from Project DIP IA, the first experiment in the DIHEST Improvement Program Series. The experiment was designed to measure velocity, acceleration, and soil stress from the detonation of a buried 40-ton charge of slurry explosive. The free-field ground motion instruments were installed in 9-inch diameter holes 5 feet to 60 feet deep at ranges of 40 feet to 200 feet from the charge centerline. Plots of the electronic data traces are presented.
