In our research, the cutting element is a tricone bit which consists of three cones each one of them with a bit series that can be made of steel for soft rock and tungsten carbide for hard rock (Fig.
Therefore, for an efficient drilling in a rock formation with a determined strength, the weight parameter on the tricone bit, the rotation velocity and the bore hole diameter are adequately combined.
If the pressure continues, the tricone bit could be buried in the rock, besides, an additional pressure is hardly noted in the penetration velocity.
