Abstract

In future, tunneling and mining will play a major role due to the opening of new
resources and living environment, as an irreversible consequence of the growing world population.
To improve the efficiency of a tunneling or mining project, an increased durability of the used tools
and the knowledge about the remaining service life constituent a key instrument in this context. It is
the aim of this work to illustrate the different tribological systems which are present during a
tunneling or mining process, depending on the soil or rather the material to be mined. In addition,
different tool concepts, a description of the respectively tool-mineral interaction and common
material concepts will be described, basically.
