Rock Drillability. George Exadaktylos. Professor of Rock Mechanics & Mining Engineering, School of Mineral Resources. Engineering, Technical University. The purpose of this paper is to provide a proper, practical and convenient drilling rate index (DRI) prediction model based on rock material. Quantifying the rock microfabric is one of the most important research interests and challenges in the field of rock drilling and excavation.

The real rock is in between depending upon the rock type. These are compiled and normalized in a scale of 1 to 8; value of 1 represents very soft rock and a value of 8 represents hard rock, ideally.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Drkllability Techology: Advanced search Show search help. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: These rock properties are typically estimated using electric log data [17,18,19,20,21] using a known calibration or mea in the laboratory in absence of logs.

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ However, quite often, rock properties like UCS and abrasiveness have historically drilpability used to define rock drillability and help decide bit selection, drive mechanism and drilling parameters.

Further, it has been found that these estimates do not often provide the full picture of rocls of rocks, which have complicated mineralogy and microstructures that go through complex digenesis process.

Drillability of rocks, by an expert, is defined by a large number of parameters [6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16], which are not well understood or communicated to the end user.

Abstract Drillability of a rock is often expressed in terms of a large number of parameters; however, the industry hardly uses any. Peer reviewed only Published between: Quite often these are not well understood or communicated to the end users.

Definition of drillability – glossary

Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: It also indicates a co-efficient of energy transfer and the extent of vibration in an efficient drilling process. The drillability is assumed to be indicative of unconfined compressive strength UCS at atmospheric drilling [1,2] or confined compressive strength CCS together with a factor of efficiency [3,4,5]. As a compromise, the present work describes drillability in terms of eight simple physical, mechanical, and micro-structural properties, which are displayed visually and are available from either log data or from laboratory core testing.


Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. Further, this gives an excellent tool to optimize the bit and drilling process for a given rock formation while depicting its physico-mechanical and micro-structural properties as a signature plot. As a result, the industry uses hardly any.
