It is difficult to discuss drillstring mechanics without including the broader aspects of drilling. The drillstring is central to rotary drilling but it must be viewed as a part of the total drilling system. All subsystems (hoisting, rotary, circulating, well control, and power) must work together. This chapter covers the mechanics of several related topics with emphasis on the role of drillstrings.

5.1 Developing the Drilling Program
5.2 Hydraulics of Rotary Drilling
5.3 Optimum Drilling Practice
