Preface of Mechanical Excavation in Mining and Civil Industries 1st Edition book.
This book is intended to reflect several years of experience and accumulated knowledge on mechanized excavation, applied especially in mining and construction industries. First, a brief information and background will be given on site investigation, physical and mechanical properties of rocks, soils, and coal. Then, rock-cutting theories, laboratory rock-cutting tests, wear of cutting tools, roadheaders, impact hammers, hard rock TBMs, soft ground TBMs, microtunnel boring machines, shaft and raise boring machines, large diameter drills, mechanical excavation in coal mines, chain saw machines, and emerging excavation technologies including current research are presented. Almost 50 numerical examples with solutions are included in the book to clarify the topics, such as:
- Hard- and soft-ground tunnel boring machines (TBMs)
- Impact hammers
- Large-diameter drill rigs
- Chain saws
- Raise borers
- Microtunnel boring machines
It is intended to serve students and practicing engineers in their understanding and decision-making on selecting a proper mechanical excavator for a specific job.
