Abstract : The concept of a locking material and the potential effectiveness of the locking material for possible use as a countermeasure to specified mine blasts have been investigated in this report. The effectiveness of the countermeasure has been demonstrated by the use of analytical methods and second order accurate computer codes. Computer codes have been developed to investigate and evaluate such a design that uses the countermeasures. These computer codes include programs in one space dimension, and axisymmetric coordinates. As a result of the investigation, specific design parameters, candidate materials and fields for further study have been identified. (Author)
