Abstract: Comparative experiments between the dynamic cutting tests using the Dynamic Cutting Discs (DCD) fatigue technology and the traditional (non-oscillating) hard rock cutting process are determined as the main purpose of this study to develop a novel hard rock cutting technology. When the DCD rock cutting test results are compared with the TBM disc test results working with the vibration-free conventional discs, the cutting forces, and the Specific Energy (SE) were found to decrease by 25-30% with the increased amount of excavated material by 200%. It was attained that the magnitude of the average normal force FN decreased more than the average cutting force FR when the disc vibrated at 45 Hz. Moreover, it was determined that the cutting forces decreased significantly as the cyclic loading frequency increased. More cracks occurred with the rock fatigue mechanism and the FPZ resulting in more rock chips than with the non-oscillating conventional cutter. This is a very effective finding because the most generally accepted parameters for evaluating excavation efficiency in mechanical rock cutting research are the cutting forces and the Specific Energy (SE) values calculated from the amount of rock material removed. The experimental and numerical analysis results showed that there are two effective damage mechanisms in the rock/tool interaction zone that cause these cutting force reductions and obtaining more cut material: rock fatigue damage mechanism and cyclic indentation damage mechanism. In conclusion, it is believed that this high energy saving rate obtained from the research results will be sustainable in scientific, economic, commercial, and social areas.
