Our know-how and experince relies on communication with fellow collegues and the possibility to further investigate and propagate innovative new approaches.

Consequently one of the aims of Dr. Plinninger Geotechnik is to investigate and develop innovative approaches and technologies in the fields of:

  • Investigation of rock and soil for prediction of excavation performance and tool wear.
  • Geotechnical Measurements and Instrumentation.

One of our concepts, the RAI Rock Abrasivity Index (first published in 2002) has since then found a broad woldwide application for drill bit lifetime estimation in the field of tunnelling and mining.
