Re: building demolition trough implosion by explosives

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A good text book on this topic is:

Charles H. Dowding, CONSTRUCTION VIBRATIONS, Prentice Hall, 1996.

You can purchase the book through ISEE (but I'm not sure if you can order
it online or not).
