This paper presents some factors affecting soil-structure interaction during blasting operations with emphasis on how blasting affects structural response. A new measuring technique which measures in situ wall cracks during the blasting operation is proposed. Instruments, installation procedures, and measuring techniques are presented. The term called Cracking Intensity Factor, used for an indication of structural response, is proposed and discussed.
