Thermal Rock Fragmentation Model
The cost of experimentally studying the various parameters of most engineering systems justifies simplified theoretical studies which provide guidance for the optimal design of such systems. It is often of value to be able to confirm theoretically certain unusual phenomena which have been observed experimentally. the mechanics of the thermal-mechanical rock fragmentation system considered here are typical in that full scale tests are difficult and expensive. Since this investigation is concerned with thermal fragmentation of hard rocks, mathematical models are based on properties characteristic of igneous rocks.
