[email protected]Rock strength can be measured in a number of ways. Generally, the UCS Unconfined Compressive Strength is the most common type of assessment. Direct measurement is undertaken in a similar way to concrete cylinders i.e. a core of rock must be taken of the rock mass you are assessing.

Rock strength and porosity have good correlations for various rocks, and porosity can be obtained from lab tests or from density and sonic logs. In the following equations, the rock strength UCS is in MPa and porosity is in percent . For shales in the North Sea geologically young and weak shales, mostly highporosity Tertiary shales, Horsrud 2001 proposed the following correlations for ...
This test method specifies the apparatus, instrumentation, and procedures for determining unconfined compressive strength of intact rock core specimens. This procedure is identical to ASTM D 2938 except that the cores are tested after cutting without grinding, and neoprene caps are used on the specimen ends.

Soft rock is a term that usually refers to a rock material with a uniaxial compressive strength UCS less than 20 MPa. This low strength range might be influenced by physical characteristics ...
The unconfined compressive strength UCS is the maximum axial compressive stress that a rightcylindrical sample of material can withstand under unconfined conditionsthe confining stress is zero. It is also known as the uniaxial compressive strength of a material because the application of compressive stress is only along one axisthe ...

Mar 06, 2015018332This method of rock classification was introduced by Deer amp Miller in the year 1996. Two parameters are considered while classifying rocks on this method, which are Uniaxial compressive strength Modulus of elasticity Step by Step Method to Classify Rock Based on Engineering Parameters This method of rock classification consists of 3 steps, as given
for a broad range of coal measure rock types. For the entire data set, the relationship between UCS and sonic travel time is expressed by the following equation, where UCS is in psi and t is the travel time of the Pwave in microsecft. UCS 468,000 x e0.054t 1 The r
The HoekBrown strength criterion was applied to estimate the strength of the rock mass at the Aznalcollar open pit. It was shown that by assuming disturbed rock mass, a good agreement was found between estimated strength values and backcalculated strengths from observed slope failures in the footwall. These values are probably conservative and
Rock engineers widely use the uniaxial compressive strength UCS of rocks in designing surface and underground structures. The procedure for measuring this rock strength has been standardized by both the International Society for Rock Mechanics 1 and American Society for Testing and Materials 2. The method is time consuming and expensive.
1.1 This test method specifies the apparatus, instrumentation, and procedures for determining unconfined compressive strength of intact rock core specimens. 1.2 The values stated in inchpound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI values given in parentheses are for information only.

By comparing the UCS of the rock to rock stresses result in an estimation of the rock mass strength and the factor of safety FOS against rock mass failure. We can provide turn key solutions for determining the rock mass strength, in situ stresses and provide you high quality stability analysis.
The strength of rocks is generally evaluated based on uniaxial compressive strength UCS. However, rock core pieces for UCS tests cannot always be obtained from outcrops of faulted, jointed, or heavily crushed rock masses. In these cases, the point load strength PLS or needle penetration NP test is a convenient and effective alternative to ...
The ratio of UCSSRH defined as a function of the UCS is a much better indicator for assessing the mechanical characteristics of rocks because the UCS of rocks defines the strength of the material and the ratio UCSSRH is strongly affected by the level of the UCS.

unconfined compressive strength of rocks UCS. Since one cannot expect 100 efficiency of energy transfer from the bit to the rock, one can then replace SE by the term 3 Rock drillability prediction from in situ determined unconfined compressive strength of rock by V.C. Kelessidis Synopsis
Jul 17, 2009018332One of the parameters which affect the uniaxial compressive strength UCS of rock materials is the length to diameter ratio LD of test cores. ASTM recommends a ratio of between 2 and 2.5, and ISRM suggests 2.531. Research has shown that high UCS values are obtained for LD ratios lt2, a very slight difference in values between 2 and 2.5, and they remain effectively constant with a

that rock strength is affected by the SIZE of the specimen tested. This can be explained simply as being the result of the many flaws found in rock in the form of fissures, pores, cleavage, bedding planes, foliation, etc. The larger the size of the specimen tested the higher the probability that a weak flaw will be available, capable of ...
Jun 04, 2015018332Estimating compressive strength. General rock failure criterion can be reduced to a few parameters dependent on lithology m and the uniaxial compressive strength C 0.Lithology is commonly derived during log analysis, so m may be estimated Table 1.What is needed still is an initial measure of rock strength provided by C 0. C 0 can be estimated from porosity or sonic velocities, but
strength is the most commonly measured strength parameter and this is also true of rock specimens. For the uniaxial or unconfined compressive strength test a right circular cylinder of the material is compressed between the platens of a testing machine as illustrated in Fig. 8.1. The
