Paper Abstract

The purpose of this project was to develop a high speed photography system for studying the performance of parallel hole opening-cuts. To facilitate the filming, where a speed of maximum 500 f/s was used, the opening cuts were drilled in open air in a vertical wall in a quarry. The method to use high speed photography worked very well and we observed that the performance of the parallel hole opening-cuts was not always as expected even if the blasting often led to the planned result.
