The stiffness ratio is defined as the bench height divided by the burden of a blast.
The problem was that while they understood the spacing was also extremely important, methods to determine the spacing did not readily exist due to the variations of spacing with bench height. Powder factor design was then used to fill the gap by setting an arbitrary powder factor, and after designing the burden, stemming, and subdril, the spacing would be adjusted to match this arbitrary powder factor.
As the bench height increased, and the spacing was held constant, the powder factor would increase along with the bench height.
