Relations between parameters of fracture processes on different scale levels

© 2018, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. Abstract: The processes of ultrasonically-assisted drilling (UAD) and the dynamic tests on split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB), fracture in which is implemented at various structural-scale levels, are considered. The simulation of UAD based on the Hertz contact problem and the structural−time criterion is presented. The problem of using the value of the fracture incubation time and its linear size obtained from the tests on SHPB in the simulation is considered. A principle of equal power is used for converting the strength parameters into another structural−scale level. The theoretical curve obtained in the simulation is compared with the results of experiments on conventional drilling (CD) and UAD.
