In response, producers have come up with "super-fracking" which increases the blast pressure, recovers more oil or gas and lowers production unit costs.
Perhaps a more scientific approach is required here by first incorporating blast pressure sensors, correlate vehicle damage to blast sensor readings, and use that data in a similar study.
developed an apparatus for treating a long work piece with blast pressure using an ignition chamber for generating a traveling shock-wave length that is less than the longitudinal length of the work piece, and a die with moveable plates.
Among the topics are a comparison of hydrodynamic and analytic predicted blast pressure profiles, the laboratory simulation of blast loading on building and bridge structures, a simplified blast simulation procedure for hazard mitigation planning, and the simulation-based design of vehicles exposed to blast threats for improved occupant survivability.
The three-metre wall is designed to absorb and redirect the blast pressure and fragmentation from large improvised devices such as vehicle bombs, and has been tested against blasts of up to 250kg.
Another factor that must be taken into consideration is the probability that someone in the circle pit would be killed from blast pressure in the event of an explosion in the ammunition pit.
The series explains how people managed to survive direct attacks by sheltering under the stairs, and why so many people died instantly, with no apparent injuries, simply from the blast pressure on their lungs.
