A Theoretical Model for Estimating the Wear of the Disc Cutter
In this paper a method for evaluating the slip speed in rolling contact is introduced from the contact mechanics viewpoint. Based on the analysis of the wear factors of the disc cutter, a theoretical model which includes disc cutter structural parameters and boring parameters is proposed to estimate the wear of the disc cutter in normal wear conditions. This theoretical model provides a basis for estimating the wear of the disc cutter and determining the replacing time of the disc cutter.
