s = constant depending on the characteristics of the rock mass, σc = uniaxial compressive strength of the intact rock material, σ1 = major principal stress at failure, and σ3 = minor principal stress at failure. The uniaxial compressive strength for the rock mass, σc, rockmass, can be expressed by setting σ3 = 0 in Equation 2.1 thus obtaining
Abstract. Point-load strength (Is) as a measure for the determination of rock strength and for estimating uniaxial (unconfined) compressive strength (UCS) are described and both put together and used for rock strength classification of brittle and hard rocks.
Standard Test Method for Unconﬁned Compressive Strength of Intact Rock Core Specimens1 This standard is issued under the ﬁxed designation D 2938; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision.
The Schmidt hammer is commonly used for the prediction of unconfined compressive strength and other mechanical properties of rocks from surface rebound hardness values since it is quick, easy, inexpensive, and non-destructive testing method. In this study, metamorphic, sedimentary, and igneous rock samples were collected from various locations in Turkey to predict the rock strength from ...
The unconfined compressive strength (UCS) is the maximum axial compressive stress that a right-cylindrical sample of material can withstand under unconfined conditions—the confining stress is zero. It is also known as the uniaxial compressive strength of a material because the application of compressive stress is only along one axis—the ...
A measure of a material's strength. The uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) is the maximum axial compressive stress that a right-cylindrical sample of material can withstand before failing. It is also known as the unconfined compressive strength of a material because confining stress is set to zero.
indirect measure of the compressive or tensile strength of the rock. D'Andrea et al.[4] performed uniaxial compression and the point load tests on a variety of rocks. They found the following linear regression model to correlate the UCS and Is(50). qu = 16.3 + 15.3 Is(50) where qu = Uniaxial Compressive Strength of rock.
Estimating compressive strength. General rock failure criterion can be reduced to a few parameters dependent on lithology (m) and the uniaxial compressive strength (C 0). Lithology is commonly derived during log analysis, so m may be estimated (Table 1). What is needed still is an initial measure of rock strength provided by C 0.

1. Introduction. The determination of basic mechanical properties of rocks is crucial to a specific engineering project. Several mechanical properties, including uniaxial compressive strength (UCS), have become widely accepted parameters for rock design projects (Baskerville, 1987).From past to present, direct and indirect methods have been used to determine UCS of rocks in field and laboratory.
