Drilling is a method of exploration and minerals mining. In an era of economy and struggle for energy resources, drilling becomes important in the world economy development. Drilling requires modern high requirements for technical and economic indicators. Drilling requires the use of an integrated approach in the scientific drilling processes study. The drilling model is a complex system.
The model consists of mechanical, chemical, hydraulic, temperature states. Some drilling elements need to be studied at the micro level to achieve results reliability. Thus, the drilling processes study is a difficult task. Solving it with the usual methods is not always possible. Computer modeling is the most promising in this direction. Computer modeling is capable of:
- maximize the research model to the real conditions,
- reduce tool development time and costs, analysis of drilling processes,
- visualize the result.
The LabVIEW programming environment has a large set of add-ons and libraries. One of the additions is the work with graphics, it allows in real time mode to display the change of various geometric shapes depending on the programmable mathematical formulas. This supplement allowed to show the dynamics of the rock cut by the cutters. Figures shows the results of modeling the passage of diamond incisors by rock in two cycles of the program.
