Experiment, Report 89.3.OS.2562, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

This report contains the testresults of experiments conducted on a pipe-cutter, when cutting with point shaped and oblique shaped knives. These experiments are to be seen as an extension of previous tests, as described in report 88.3.OS.2475 (J. van Kasteren "Development of a large pipecutter. Preliminary investigation"), where parallel "shearing" with straight knives was used.

The processes of deformation and shearing are occurring simultaneously when point shaped and oblique shaped knives are used, in stead of separately in the case of cutting with straight knives.

In order to study these processes separately, tests were also performed on rectangular test pieces with dimensions consistent with a fully deformed test-pipe.
