Model Study of the Water Pressure Distribution in a Crack When Impacted by a High Pressure Water Jet
A high pressure water jet has proven to be a very effective tool for the disintegration of materials especially those which have a blocky structure. To gain a better understanding of material disintegration, a model study of water jet action on material discontinuities has been carried out and the pressure distribution inside a gap, designed to simulate a representative microcrack in the material, has been recorded. This study provides information on hydrowedge creation and high pressure jet injection into materials during failure.
