Re: Building implosion

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Types of explosives use in demolition? These
explosives? characteristics? The places where the
explosives should put in a building?  The holes
characteristics which we put the explosives inside.
How can we determine the amount of explosives to
demolish a building? What are the parameters which
effect amount of explosive?  
Thanks in advance,
