Manual of Explosives free pdf Excerpt from Manual of Explosives: A Brief Guide for the Use of Miners and Quarrymen In spite of the enormous quantities of explosives which are consumed in modern engineering operations, there exists a very imperfect knowledge of their character and qualities on the part of the general public. Not only does this entail great risk to life and proper-y from the incautious use of these powerful agents of destruction, but their employment by men ignorant of their proper application for the performance of specific work under varying conditions leads to important waste of material. If a charge of dynamite or other high explosive is so fired as to produce only 75 percent, of its possible useful effect, there has resulted both a loss of available energy and a waste of a certain portion of the time, labor and power expended in preparing for the blast. The aggregate unproductive expenditure appears as a first charge against the ore or rock extracted. In such a brief survey of the subject as is here contemplated it will be impossible to lay down rules which will enable one to employ explosives always with safety and to the highest economic advantage, but it may serve to correct many erroneous impressions and to point out the way to a better use of blasting agents. For those who wish to acquire further information on the characteristics of explosives, and the proper application of them in industrial work, a list of valuable treatises is given at the end of this Manual.
