Point load strength index of granitic irregular lumps: Size

2017. 11. 1.  Results from irregular lump point load tests, diametral and axial point load tests, and uniaxial compressive tests (a total of 754 specimens of granitic rocks were tested) are then presented, analyzed, and discussed. A correlation between PLSI from irregular lump tests and UCS is established with a suitable size correction function.

USING THE POINT LOAD TEST TO DETERMINE THE UNIAXIAL

2012. 8. 29.  Point load testing is used to determine rock strength indexes in geotechnical practice. The point load test apparatus and procedure enables economical testing of core or lump rock samples in either a field or laboratory setting. In order to estimate uniaxial compressive strength, index-to-strength conversion factors are used. These factors have been proposed

The Poisson's ratio v for fresh, slightly, moderately decomposed granite and fresh tuff are 0.23, 0.23, 0.4 and 0.3, respectively.

STRENGTH PROPERTIES OF ROCKS AND ROCK MASSES 1.

2006. 3. 19.  Broch and Franklin (1972) proposed a testing method called the Point Load Test. The test consists of squeezing pieces of rock diametrically between two hardened steel cones. The test set-up is shown in Figure 1. For these tests, rock pieces must have a length at least 1.4 times their diameter (Figure 2a). The point load index, Id, is equal to

A Study on Variation in Mineralogical and Strength Characteristics

2019. 7. 1.  A number of thin sections of granite rock samples were prepared and examined under microscope in presence of polarised light. The strength properties of the granitic rocks were examined by laboratory testing. The test includes point load strength index, Brazilian tensile strength and uniaxial compressive strength and as per ISRM specification.

Either three point or four point loading (Fig. 8.6) may be used in the test. For a cylindrical rock specimen (diameter d) and the four point loading arrangement as shown in Fig. 8.6, it may be shown that the tensile strength (σt) is
