The Delft Sand, Clay and Rock Cutting Model
by Sape A. Miedema
Publisher: IOS Press 2014
Number of pages: 572
This book provides an overview of cutting theories. It begins with a generic model, valid for all types of soil (sand, clay and rock), and continues with the specifics of dry sand, water-saturated sand, clay, atmospheric rock and hyperbaric rock. Small blade angles and large blade angles are discussed for each soil type, and for each case considered the equations/model for cutting forces, power and specific energy are given.
