  • Oscillating Disc Cutting Technique for Hard Rock Excavation

    Jun 23, 2013The technology for the mechanical excavation of low to medium strength rock has been substantially well developed, and therefore it has been used in most cases as an alternative technology to drill and blast excavation (Gertsch, 1994). However, in the case of hard rock excavation, especially for mining excavations, such advancement in the

  • Mechanical Deformation Characteristics of Hard Rock in

    In the process of deep tunnel excavation, the surrounding rock mass, which often endures high initial geo-stress, is in the state of typical unloading. As the adjustment of stress induced by excavation, rock mass behaves a peculiar kind of mechanical deformation characteristics, different from those in loading conditions. As thus, a series of representative unloading tests on hard granite from

  • Rock Excavation Cost

    The cost of a typical residential excavation work averages at around $3500. Land excavators usually measure cost by cubic yards of dirt moved, which can run anywhere from $50 to $200 for every cubic yard. Rock excavation can cost much more than the usual excavation. Depending on the site, rock excavators can charge between $40-100 per cubic yard.
