1.  Rossi, E., M.A. Kant, C. Madonna, M.O. Saar, and Ph. Rudolf von Rohr The effects of high heating rate and high temperature on the rock strength: Feasibility study of a thermally assisted drilling method, . Abstract
In this paper, the feasibility of a thermally assisted drilling method is investigated. The working principle of this method is based on the weakening effect of a flame-jet to enhance the drilling performance of conventional, mechanical drilling. In order to investigate its effectiveness, we study rock weakening after rapid, localized fl
