Ground vibration, induced from blasting operation, takes a considerable part of blasting energy and also can cause many destructive effects. Many empirical relationships have been developed in this regards. In this paper, with the help of Artificial Neural Network (ANN), a model for simulation of ground vibration of blasting operation in Sarcheshmeh copper mine, has been presented.
The model is has shown a good flexibility for different situation. To determine the efficiency of the model, it was examined with data obtained from actual operations in the mine. Finally, comparing the output of the model and of the data actual operation, it has been observed that the model could be used suitably for prediction of ground vibration due to blasting
