ABSTRACT
Particle Impact Drilling is an efficient drilling technology for deep-well hard formation which cuts rock mainly by high-speed spherical particle impacting rock with the help of hydraulic action and mechanical action. In order to determine main influence factors and their order of priority, the orthogonal experiment was designed and the experimental data was analyzed with both the general method and the variance method. The analysis indicates that the order of priority of the main influence factors of particle water jet rock-cutting performance is pump pressure ps, impacting range S, particle mass concentration ω, confining pressure P and particle diameter dp. Moreover, ps is highly important and S and ω are important. In addition, high ps, moderate S, moderate ω, moderate dp and low P could effectively promote particle water jet to impact and cut rocks. Key words: Deep hard formation; Particle impact drilling; Particle water jet; Rock-cutting performance; Orthogonal experiment method; Analysis of variance
