The wear phenomenon plays a fundamental role in excavation work, as it directly affects
times and costs. While prediction models are available in the literature for rock applications,
a standardized procedure for predicting wear is not yet available for soils. In this
work, the Soil Abrasion Test Apparatus (SATA) is used to study the wear dependence from
the moisture content. 6 different types of soils were tested by varying the moisture content
and results were obtained in terms of weight loss...

Demand for metals for renewable energy infrastructure and electric vehicles is likely to increase
in near future, driving up prices. However, mining companies have little appetite for investing in capital-intensive projects with long lead times or for the perennial challenges of permitting so their
strategies aren’t yet focused on the growth. Moreover, the past decade was largely spent rebuilding balance sheets due to low commodities price. The remainder of the decade leads to more cautious choices. Consequentially, to...

CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title.
CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a range of four years (e.g. 2016-2019) to peer-reviewed documents (articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters) published in the same four calendar years, divided by the number of these documents in these same four years (e.g. 2016 —19).
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
2019: 1.307
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)
2019: o.657
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal's impact.
Journal Metrics: CiteScore: 1.0 , Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.381 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.163
