Laboratory Tests For Determination of Strength of Rocks

Unconfined compression test. This test is the most popular and most commonly applied strength test in rocks. To obtainaccurate results, the unconfined compression test should be done with utmost care. The specimen should be in the form of a cylinder of length to width ratio varying from 2 to 2.5.

Laboratory testing of rock mass strength I Geotech d.o.o. I

There are several methods of laboratory testing of rock mass strength, and the most important are UCS (Uniaxial compressive strength), PLT (Strength index determined by the loading procedure at the point) and the Brazilian test (Tensile strength of rocks).

Point Load Test Geoengineer

Point Load (PL) is a test that aims at characterizing rock materials in terms of strength. It is an index test, meaning that it can be performed relatively quickly and without the necessity of sophisticated equipment to provide important data on the mechanical properties of rocks.

Strength and stiffness testing of rock. Some of our more popular advanced tests include Ko-consolidated, drained and undrained triaxial compression tests of sands, silts and clays, 1-D consolidation of silts and clays, and instrumented, unconfined compression (UCS) testing for the determination of strength and elastic moduli of bedrock core.

Rock Mechanics

• Strength classification is based on strength of the rock (compressive strength modulus of elasticity; Table 7.2) • 5 strength classes: A-E based on the overall rock strength; A = very strong, E = very weak (Table 7.3) • Any discontinuities, fractures, bedding planes, etc. will strongly influence overall strength of the rock.
