STORAGE, RETRIEVAL AND STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF INDIANA SHALE DATA
This report gives a complete summary of the test data on shales generated by ISHC and Purdue University. Details are given for a very simple storage and retrieval system which is adequate for the small amount of data (163 sets) available at the present time. Results are presented from the different statistical analyses that were performed. These results include histograms, bivariate correlation coefficients and regression equations. Reasonably good bivariate correlations exist between the different indices describing the slaking resistance of shales. These correlations are however improved by using quadratic equations. Various regression equations are proposed for determining CBR from various parameters, usually a combination of five. It became clear during the investigation that it is important to have as many complete data sets as possible for future analyses. The standardization of testing methods is also of utmost importance in order to increase the potential of the data bank.
