Feb 12, 2015 Usually, the blasting technique is tailored to the properties of the specific rock type. Today, the most common method to quarry the dimension stone is by cutting out the primary blocks with a wire gang saw. Diamond wire cables are threaded through the drillholes, and tightening the wire during the sawing results soon in large cuts

Discontinuity modelling and rock block geometry

Jan 08, 2018 Block extraction from quarries is the second main phase in dimension stone production. Diamond wire cutting is the most common method applied to block extraction (Bakhtavar et al., 2012, Yarahmadi et al., 2014b, Yarahmadi et al., 2017b).Smaller blocks result from the intersection between the discontinuity network and the cutting planes in the rock mass body.
