The influence of electromagnetic fields on explosive equipment

Project No. BG02 #001

Status:

completed 12/1996

Aims:

Hypothesis that radio waves cause dangerous disruption to explosive equipment (e.g. in the vicinity of transmitters). Goal: determining safety distances between electrical explosive ignition systems and transmitters dependent on transmission frequency and transmitter performance.

Activities/Methods:

Determining connections and developing a mathematical programme

Results:

Standardised procedure for determining the required safety distances
