Drilling tools on frozen soils

The article reveals the importance and relevance of drilling operations in the area of permafrost soils. The problems arising during drilling operations in the Arctic region are considered. existing drilling tools are not efficient enough and require high energy costs during the drilling process, which leads to the creation of a new design of drilling tools. A new design of screw drilling tool and the principle of its interaction between the working surface and frozen ground are considered. The purpose of the theoretical study was to analyze the process of interaction of the second section of the destructive part of the screw blade of the drilling tool with frozen ground. The dependences of the total torque during operation of the second section of the destroyng part on the studied parameters of the screw blade are derived. The results of the study of the interaction between the screw blade of the destroying part of the screw drill and frozen ground are carried out. The dependence of torque value on the investigated geometrical parameters of the screw drill blade has been plotted. The ranges of rational values of the investigated geometrical parameters of the screw blade of the second section of the destructive part of the screw drill have been determined. The conclusions are made about the efficiency of using the helical drill on frozen soils before the existing drilling tools due to the implementable character of soil destruction by tearing off and further displacement of the rock and about the prospects of its use on frozen soils.

Keywords: screw working body, drilling tool, frozen soil, ground chipping.
