significance And Use:

Since there is no reliable method of predicting the overall strength and deformation data of a rock mass from the results of laboratory tests on small specimens, in situ tests on large specimens... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the deformability and strength of large in situ specimens of weak rock by a uniaxial - compressive test. The test results take into account the effect of both intact material behavior and the behavior of discontinuities contained within the specimen block.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
