Behavior of rock wool in lungs after exposure by nasal ...

2009-5-26  Rock wool (RW), a kind of MMVF, is made from molten soft slag such as iron slag, copper slag, nickel slag, etc., and natural stone, such as andesite, basalt and amphibolite. Because RW excels in heat resistance, fire resistance, and sound absorption, it is mainly used as a fire- and heat-resistant material, heat insulation material, and sound ...

Damage assessment of basaltic rock mass due to repeated ...

Blasting remains the most inexpensive method of underground excavations in hard rock. Unfortunately, there are no specific safety guidelines available for the blasted tunnels with regards to the threshold limits of vibrations caused by repeated blasting activity in the close proximity.

2008-5-22  Sonic-wave speed.—The sonic-wave speed of a rock is defined as the speed of sound in the rock or the velocity of a compression wave traveling in it. The more competent the rock (with less weathering and greater density), the higher the speed of a compression wave traveling in it and the greater the explosive energy needed to break the rock.
