THE EFFECT OF THE SAMPLE SHAPE ON THE POINT LOAD TEST STRENGTH INDEX

The theoretical prediction derived by the author in a previous report about how the sample shape influences the result of the point load test for the tensile strength of rock materials is shown to agree very accurately with experimental results for Bohus granite. The effect of the "sharpness" of the point loads is also studied. (TRRL)
