Paper Abstract

Dynamic double exposure holographic interferometry and sandwich holography were applied to the measurement of surface displacements resulting from the detonation of an explosive charge on the surface of rock models. A 10J state of the art ruby laser was used to illuminate three different rock models that were 0.75m on a side and 0.4m deep. In one model, a simulated tunnel was made by coring the rock specimen in a subsurface plane that was parallel to the face of the block. Another model involved the transmission and alteration of surface waves as they encountered a step change in the surface elevation. The remaining specimen consisted of an epoxy wedge overlaying the rock base. As the wave system passed into the epoxy layer of this last specimen, new waves were generated that produced dramatically increased displacements and particle velocities on the surface of the epoxy layer. These interferometric patterns were so complex that it was necessary to utilize sandwich holography to determine the wave types and the signs of the displacements.
