INFLUENCE OF LITHOLOGY ON THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF ROCKS SUBJECTED TO UNIAXIAL AND BRAZILIAN TESTS

UNIAXIAL COMPRESSION TESTS AND BRAZILIAN TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT ON A SERIES OF ROCK SAMPLES; THE GEOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS WERE INVESTIGATED. THE INFLUENCE OF THE PRINCIPAL GEOLOGICAL PARAMETER, NAMELY LITHOLOGY, ON THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF THE ROCK WAS INVESTIGATED. IT WAS FOUND THAT LITHOLOGY DIRECTLY CONDITIONS NOT ONLY THE TENSILE AND COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH, BUT ALSO THE TYPE OF FAILURE IN COMPRESSION, MODULUS OF DEFORMATION, MODULUS OF ELASTICITY, AND SENSITIVITY TO WATER SATURATION. /TRRL/
