Experimental investigation into the impact fluid fracturing of rock blocks

  • P. N. Tambovtsev
Rock Failure


It is experimentally proved that directed cracks in stone can be obtained by the method of impact fluid fracturing without stress concentrators. The influence exerted by various factors of the process under study on the energy consumption and orientation of fracturing crack in stone is determined.
