Title

Water Jet Plow

Abstract

The Hydrominer is a water-jet-assisted plow which was used to create the UMR-Stonehenge. The 52 rocks of this half-scale model were carved by high-pressure water. The trilithons of the inner circle stand 16 ft high and are made of Georgia granite with a compressive strength of 30,000 psi. The rock was cut by water jets at an average pressure of 15,000 psi.
