This research presents an extensive experimental investigation on the effect of both tool and rock properties on the contact stress and friction coefficient mobilised across the wear surface of tools in rock cutting. Novel results confirm the existence of three contact regimes elastic, elasto-plastic and plastic and the predominant role of a dimensionless a number function of the inclination angle of the wear surface, the rock elastic modulus, and rock strength on the contact stress.

Experimental investigation on the effect of wear flat inclination on the cutting response of a blunt tool in rock cuttingRostamsowlat, I.; Richard, T.; Evans, Brian (2018)A vast majority of experimental researches focuses on the cutting action of a sharp cutter, while there has been limited experimental work devoted to the study of the contact process at the wear flat-rock interface. The ...
Analysis of rock cutting process with a blunt PDC cutter under different wear flat inclination anglesRostamsowlat, I.; Akbari, B.; Evans, Brian (2018)It is generally accepted that drilling with drag bits (Polycrystalline Diamond Compact bits) simultaneously consists of “pure cutting” and “frictional contact” processes. To date, the mechanics of rock cutting have been ...
