Abstract

The given article is written for the general overview of tunnel boring and testing devices for drag bits. This is about the working principles of TBM, also it describes the materials, which are used in cutting tool and the developments related to wearing out of cutting instrument. They are defined, and their pros and cons also mentioned. Author hopes, the information which introduced in given article will be useful for engineer in this field
