Standard Test Method for Determining Deformability and Strength of Weak Rock by an In Situ Uniaxial Compressive Test
|Publication Date:||10 November 2001|
|ICS Code (Earthworks. Excavations. Foundation construction. Underground works):||93.020|
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.
