For the comprehension and analysis of blast vibrations, scientists and engineers require a sophisticated understanding of wave phenomena. Blast Vibration Analysis makes an important contribution to studies of the subject by focusing on the origin, transmission, and types of elastic wave in solid media. The approach covers physical laws involved in wave analysis as well as the mathematical tools needed to specify and analyze the variety of wave phenomena encountered in nature.

G. A. Bollinger, a former professor of geophysics at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, applies the analytical tools that have been so highly refined in earthquake engineering, earthquake seismology, and seismic exploration for petroleum i.e., digital and spectral analyses to the blast vibration problem. The text starts at an elementary level, carries the exposition to an intermediate level, and indicates the direction of more advanced consideration. Many informative tables, figures, graphs, charts, mathematical examples, and photographs of instruments appear throughout. Advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and professionals in engineering and physics will find this treatment stimulating and suggestive of further areas of study and practice.
