Abstract
In earlier experiments, charge spacing rules were developed for excavating a uniform channel through level terrain. The experiment described in this report was made to determine if those rules were also applicable to terrain with a single elevation change. The spacing rule for a channel with a uniform width was used. Too great an elevation change was used in the first firew tests, resulting in a channel which was unacceptably narrow at the end with the higher elevation. For the later tests in which the elevation change was reduced, the spacing rules were found to produce a channel with uniform width throughout. The applicability of the spacing rules to terrain with a single elevation change was verified where the spacing between unequal size charges was the average of the spacing which would have been used had those charges been one of a row in level terrain.
