CONTRIBUTION TO THE STUDY OF THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF NATURAL STONE /IN GERMAN/

A SERIES OF TESTS ON SHELL LIMESTONE AND SANDSTONE WERE CARRIED OUT TO DETERMINE THE INFLUENCE OF THE EVENNESS OF SAMPLE SURFACES AND LOADING PLATES ON THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF SAMPLES. THE INFLUENCE OF THE DIMENSIONS AND SHAPE OF THE SAMPLES ON THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH WAS ALSO INVESTIGATED. RESULTS SHOW THAT IT IS SUFFICIENT TO CONTROL THE EVENNESS WITH A PRECISION INSTRUMENT; THE REMAINING LACK OF EVENNESS HAS NO EFFECT ON THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF THE STONE. IT WAS OBSERVED THAT THERE EXISTS A CLOSE RELATION BETWEEN THE STRENGTH AND SHAPE AND DIMENSIONS OF THE SAMPLES. /LCPC/RRL/
