Mine Mechanization Laboratory
Mine Mechanization Laboratory contains the following principal equipment:
Rock cutting set-up (planer + force dynamometer + carrier amplifier + U.V. recorder + precise electronic balance).
These equipments are used for the following laboratory experiments:
Cone indenter and shore sclerescope tests to estimate the compressive strength and the cuttability of rocks.
Direct cutting test to determine the cutting specific energy and the cuttability of rocks
