PROPERTY SPECIFICATIONS OF ROCK AS BUILDING MATERIAL

VARUDEKLARATION AV BYGGNADSMATERIALET BERG

With the increased number of underground construction projects as a background, the author points out the need for acquiring improved knowledge of the properties of rock before design work begins. General characteristics of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks are briefly described. It is not enough to classify the technical properties of the mineral components of the various types of rock. To give a complete picture of the rock masses it is necessary to describe their imperfections due to external processes, mainly disintegration, cracking and crushing. /TRRL/
