Flyrock is unwanted throw of rock fragments during bench blasting in mines and civil constructions. The phenomenon is a probabilistic one and has been treated differently by several workers. Two basic models for prediction of flyrock range and size are in vogue. Indian authors have also tried to establish a relationship but have received little attention. Modern computational technique are useful in ascertaining probability or risk due to fly rock with different simulation techniques. This could , if treated in a comprehensive manner, become basis for guidelines in future. This paper tries to identify the lacunae in existing models along with an exhaustive survey of the literature published or available on the internet.
