Title

Whither Water Power? a Direction for the Future, Based on the Past

Abstract

This paper discusses recent uses for waterjets at pressure, examining the higher-pressure applications such as small-hole and "around-the-corner" drilling for methane drainage; the use of waterjets on roadheaders and augers to improve performance, and on TBM's. The benefits of the introduction of this tool into the Dimension stone industry as a means of quarrying granite, and its use in sculpting is also covered. The paper will also make reference to its use in finding landmines as this relates to the sub-soil recovery of artifacts.
