Design, debug and test a Java program that estimates safety of industrial blasts and
During industrial blasting, there might be chances of getting accidents when the rock fragments be thrown beyond the clearance zone. To avoid these accidents, safety measures has to be taken. One important factor in that is to establish a blast safety zone.
To calculate safe distance, a commonly used equation is
The below java code calculates the safe distance for the given input fields.
The input parameters taken from the user are:
- charge length (cl)
- stemming length (sl)
- borehole diameter (d)
From these fields, it will calculate the contributing charge length factor (cclf). If cclf is greater than 10, then it is limited to 10. Now depth of burial (sdob) is calculated, from which the safe distance is calculated with the help of factor of safety (FOS).
The default values taken in the code are:
- EXPLOSIVE DENSITY = 1.4 grams/centimetre^3
- FOS IS 1.5
