Although the occurrence of different soil failure mechanisms during soil cutting operations is well attested to in the literature, not all have been successfully characterised and modelled. Such quantitative and qualitative models are essential for improving the design, selection and use of soil cutting implements, in different ®eld soils under different ®eld soil conditions. This paper describes an experimental investigation of the failure characteristics of, and conditions for brittle… CONTINUE READING
