The use of industrial explosives in some of the construction phases of civil works or buildings is an irreplaceable tool because it is economic and effective. In some cases, such as excavations and demolitions, the use of explosives is carried out in urban areas. Modern techniques have reached definition levels that guarantee the efficiency of the use of explosives in many circumstances.
The aim of this biennial course is to provide engineers (and students) with the adequate knowledge: types of explosives, design and monitoring of demolitions, behavior of the blast (grain size distribution of the quality blocks of the massif, etc). In fact, it is a generalist course that focuses on the knowledge of the materials and the technical terms related to explosives and to their applications in Civil Engineering.


To whom it is addressed:
Students (Degree or Diploma in Civil Engineering and Degree in Geological Engineering) and professionals related to the geological, geotechnical or geophysical fields.
As a complement, this biennial course is highly recommended for students that are also attending the following courses: Geotechnical Engineering, Gological Engineering, Geology for Public Works, Rock Mechanics, Underground Excavations, Geophysical Prospection, Geochemistry and Seismology, Construction Management and Electrotechnics, Organisation, Measurement and Budget for Public Works.
