ROCK CHARACTERISTICS AND METHODS OF DETERMINING THESE CHARACTERISTICS

SVOISTVA GORNYKH POROD I METODY IKH OPREDELENIYA

A review is presented of the knowledge, acquired in the USSR and other countries, of stone and rock properties. Theoretical data are presented together with results of numerous research studies. An extensive bibliography is appended. The headings of the main chapters are as follows: Sampling and preparation of samples, methods of treating test results, determination of the ultimate strength of rocks in single compression, methods of determining the ultimate tensile strength of rocks, determination of the shearing strength of rocks, flexural strength and corresponding test procedures, coefficient of the mechanical strength of rocks and corresponding tests, determination of the modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio, intrinsic characteristics of rocks and their determination, hardness of rocks and corresponding tests, plasticity and brittleness of rocks and corresponding tests, abrasion properties of rocks and corresponding tests, bulk density, density and porosity of rocks and test methods, moisture content and ability of rocks to retain water, methods of studying rocks under volumetric stress, rheological properties of rocks, dynamic properties, determination of the mechanical strength of one rock in a rock mass, cracking of rocks, petrographic properties and their influence on the physico-mechanic characteristics of rocks, studies of rocks in coal and mineral deposits, and analysis of experimental data relating to the properties of rocks studied. /IRRD/
