Cutting forces in dry sand

In dry sand only the gravitational force `G`, the inertial force `I`, the internal friction angle `phi` and the external friction angle `delta` play a role.

The different forces:

The gravitational force:

`FG`

The inertial force:

`FI`

Relations between shear forces and normal forces:

`S1N1`

`S2N2`

Horizontal equilibrium of forces:

`HEQdrysand`

Vertical equilibrium of forces:

`VEQdrysand`

This gives for the unknown grain forces `K_1` and `K_2`:

`K1drysand`

`K2drysand`

This gives for the unknown normal forces `N_1` and `N_2`:

`N1drysand`

`N2drysand`

The horizontal and vertical forces on the cutting blade can now be calculated according to:

`Fhdrysand`

`Fvdrysand`

The specific energy

`ESP`

`alpha` degrees
`h_i` m
`h_b` m
`w` m
`phi` degrees
`delta` degrees
`n_i` %
