The research aims to develop bit/rock interaction models for Impregnated Diamond (ID) bits. An experimental approach is used to study the dominant cutting and wear processes governing the bit/rock interface. The developed models are used to investigate the effects of the bit and rock properties as well as operating conditions on the drilling response. Furthermore, a field case study is performed, at which the drilling data is analysed using the framework of the model.

Modelling pile capacity and load-settlement behaviour of piles embedded in sand & mixed soils using artificial intelligenceAlkroosh, Iyad Salim Jabor (2011)This thesis presents the development of numerical models which are intended to be used to predict the bearing capacity and the load-settlement behaviour of pile foundations embedded in sand and mixed soils. Two artificial ...
