High Pressure Waterjet Laboratory

Rock Mechanics & Explosives Research Center
Grzegorz Galecki (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.
