High Pressure Waterjet Laboratory
Energetic Materials, Rock Characterization, and Geomechanics
Andreas Eckert (Director)
State-of-the-art equipment provides support for studying and providing solutions for special needs in manufacturing, mineral processing, nano- materials, and military, aerospace, and environmental industries.
Processes utilizing high pressure waterjets include high-precision waterjet cutting, depth-cut control, surface preparation of steel, titanium and other materials, accelerated excavation, comminution, multi-axis milling in mining and manufacturing, and erosion prevention.
Other topics investigated with the high pressure waterjet include fundamental studies of two- and three-phase flow, the mechanics of fluid jet generation, high speed phenomena, and the physics of fluid impact.
This laboratory is available to serve campus needs. Please call for rates.
