Abstract : A consequence analysis was performed to determine how much explosive could be stored in an underground rock storage. Consequences from shock pressure and from debris were determined and expressed as group risk. An aversion function was used to give the subjective group risk which was the basis for decisions. The storage is situated in a populated area and several groups of objects were analyzed for exposure. The individual risk for the persons at highest risk was estimated.
