Blast induced vibration is one of the most important environmental problems in various sectors such as mining, quarry, tunneling and pipeline trenching. Therefore, experts in this field study intensively to eliminate these effects. The majority of these studies focus on the generation of equations for forecasting values of blast induced vibrations. However, experts do not seem to have reached a consensus on the issue of forecasting and preventing blast induced vibration. This can be explained by ground conditions and design parameters that are totally different from each other.
