CORRELATION OF MEASURED FOUNDATION MODULUS WITH THE IN SITU ROCK PROPERTIES

RESULTS OF IN-SITU FOUNDATION MODULUS TESTS AT THREE SITES OF DAMS IN TASMANIA ARE PRESENTED. THESE RESULTS ARE USED TO OBTAN A CORRELATION BETWEEN THE MODULUS OF ELASTICITY AND THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE ROCK. SOME SIGNIFICANT DEPARTURES FROM THE CORRELATION INDICATE THAT THE TESTING PROCEDURE AND HIGH STRESSES IN THE ROCK MAY AFFECT THE MODULUS OBTAINED FROM THE TESTS. /RRL/
