For other rocks, e.g. Zhaogu sandstone as shown in Fig. 4, the exponential criterion with a tension cut-off at σ 3 = −T is able to describe strength of rocks under compressive-tensile stresses. The exponential criterion is applicable low to σ E for the major principal stress as shown in Fig. 4 .
In geology, the term compression refers to a set of stress directed toward the center of a rock mass. Compressive strength refers to the maximum compressive stress that can be applied to a material before failure occurs.
The radial strength of Li 2 TiO 3 pebbles was about 1.7 times large as the evaluated compression strength. The difference is caused by the effects on specimen size, surface roughness, grain size and internal defect of the pebbles. Furthermore, the contact strength of Li

Unconfined Compressive Strength Test Procedure Check the ability of the spherical seat to rotate freely in its socket before each test. Place the lower platen on the base or actuator rod of the loading device. Wipe clean the bearing faces of the upper and lower platens and of the test specimen, and place the test specimen on the lower platen. Place the upper platen on the specimen and align ...
σci is the uniaxial compressive strength of the intact rock pieces. The Mohr envelope, relating normal and shear stresses, can be determined by the method proposed by Hoek and Brown (1980a). In this approach, equation 11.1 is used to generate a series of triaxial test values, simulating full scale field tests, and a . 162 Chapter 11: Rock mass properties statistical curve fitting process is ...
1. Introduction. The determination of basic mechanical properties of rocks is crucial to a specific engineering project. Several mechanical properties, including uniaxial compressive strength (UCS), have become widely accepted parameters for rock design projects (Baskerville, 1987).

Mechanical failure in rocks generally means either fracturing or permanent deformation as a result of compression. While many methods for calculating failure relationships exist, an initial measure of the compressive strength of reservoir rocks is still needed for use in those calculations.
Generally, sedimentary rocks can range from weak to medium (10-80 MPa), and igneous rocks range from medium to very strong (40-320 MPa). The highest unconfined compressive strength observed in a rock is on the order of 400 MPa (e.g. nephritic jade).

Kazi et al. (1983) proposed an empirical equation relating the uniaxial compressive strength of intact rocks to their dynamic modulus. A statistical analysis of more than 200 tests reported in
In this study, 31 empirical equations are summarized that relate unconfined compressive strength and internal friction angle of sedimentary rocks (sandstone, shale, and limestone and dolomite) to physical properties (such as velocity, modulus, and porosity).
where C 0 is uniaxial compressive strength and E is dynamic Young's modulus (see Stress strain relationships in rocks). Alternatively, we can include an empirical dependence of the internal friction angle, α, or the porosity, Φ .
