EFFICIENT EXCAVATION, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO CUTTING HEAD DESIGN OF HARD ROCK TUNNELING MACHINES. PART 1

THE BASIC MECHANISM OF ROCK CUTTING IS CONSIDERED AND A THEORY OF BORING EFFICIENCY, BASED ON ROCK COMMINUTION, IS DEVELOPED. THE THEORY IS APPLIED TO FULL FACE TUNNELLING MACHINES OF CIRCULAR CROSS-SECTION AS A GENERAL METHOD OF ANALYSIS, RATHER THAN APPLIED TO PROBLEMS OF DETAIL CUTTING FACE DESIGN. /TRRL/
