Feb 16, 2016 The effect of rock mass properties on machine penetration rate (PR) and the relation with other operational parameters were analyzed. The rock strength affects the rock behaviour under compression. When the rolling cutters indent the rock, the stress exerted must be higher than the rock strength i.e. the rock strength is directly relevant to ... strength and a better rock mass strength estimation method should be developed. This requires more case histories where the determined/estimated rock mass strength from the criteria/systems can be compared to the measured/determined rock mass strength.

The strength of slender pillars can be estimated using empirically developed equations. However, the equations can provide variable results when the width-to-height ratios approach 0.5. This paper investigates some of the issues affecting pillar strength at low width-to-height ratios in hard brittle rock.
Read Moreout for rock. In a direct tensile strength test a cylindrical rock specimen is stressed along its axis by means of a tensile force. The tensile strength is then calculated as the failure tensile force divided by the cross-sectional area. It has been found that a rock core will split along a diameter when loaded on its side in a compression machine. Jun 01, 2018 The report provides a comprehensive suite of results from 134 specimens tested under uniaxial compression and 33 specimens tested under triaxial compression on a wide variety of rock, including hard rock, which frequently is of interest for high-capacity foundation systems.
