Abstract: This paper reviews the work pierformed by Southwest Research Institute on Projects PR-15-76 and PR-15-109 for the Pipeline Research Committee of the American Gas Association under the guidance of the Blasting Research Supervisory Committee. The review includes a synopsis of the theoretical approach, the experimental methods and actual experiments performed by Southwest Research Institute. A method of analyzing blasting effects from buried explosive detonations on buried pipelines is explained via text and through the use of a chart. The chart can be used as a tool to make the methods easy to apply. A procedure for handling blasting encroachments from notification through postblast activities is also included.
