Mine Mechanization Laboratory

 

    Mine Mechanization Laboratory contains the following principal equipment:

    Cone indenter
    Shore sclerescope
    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
