Theoretical analysis of the sclerograph test for rock materials shows that a considerable and unknown amount of the sclerograph piston's impact energy is converted to internal vibration in the piston after impact. Nevertheless experimental results show that the piston recoil factor k correlates remarkably well with other, more easily understandable rock strength data, such as the tensile strength index obtained from the point load test.
