    pressure test. Calculate Rock Deformation Properties.-Using the recorded volume and pressure changes, the in situ modulus of deformation of the rock mass and other rock properties are calculated. 4. Significance and Use Input Parameters for Feature Stability.-Prediction of rock mass deformability, creep characteristics.   Equipment that is frequently used for this is illustrated with emphasis on common techniques in situ and in the laboratory. Results of extensive testing on soft rocks are presented with emphasis on the testing of a very heterogeneous conglomerate rock mass at a dam site in Japan.

      Rock testing 1. MODULE 4 LABORATORY AND FIELD TESTING OF ROCKS Ms. Anjana R Menon,, Dept of Civil Engg 2. OVERVIEW • Laboratory tests: • Tension- Split tensile / Brazilian test • Shear –UCC and Triaxial test • Flexure- Beam bending test • Elastic Modulus by Brazilian and bending tests • Insitu tests: • Deformability- PLT, Uniaxial jacking, Pressuremeter • . The in-situ deformability of rocks and the state-of-stress must be known for the analysis and design of surface and underground structures. This paper presents a method for determining the in-situ deformability of rock-masses using friction gages.

ASCE in , In-Situ Soil Testing, L.C. started with the purchase of a DMT/CPT truck originally owned by the University of Florida and designed by Dr. John Schmertmann (history of . The rock types investigated included granite and basalt, gneiss, schist, sandstone, limestone, and siltstone. Geologic discontinuities such as joints, faults, and weathered rock are of major importance in an engineering evaluation of in-situ rock because of their effect upon the deformability, shear strength, and permeability of the mass.

In addition, there are a number of controversial questions pertinent to in situ by: 4. Different In-Situ Tests for Determining Deformability Parameter s of Rock Mass The defor mability measurement tests can be divided into two par ts based on the method applicable.

Abstract. This chapter first briefly describes in situ rock stresses and the strategy for estimating them. Then the various methods for making preliminary estimation of in situ rock stresses are presented, including the World Stress Map, the empirical correlations between vertical and horizontal stresses and depth, and the different analytical models.

PublicationASTM, West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. 39â Goodman () reviews many of the static and dynamic tests used to determine the deformability of rocks, describing the apparatus, field and laboratory techniques, and the interpretation of the results.

The dilatometer is one of the most versatile instruments used to determine the in situ modulus of deformation. in-situ deformability vs weathering of a granite rock in barcelona (spain) Within the work of geotechnical investigation for the design of a new line of the Barcelona subway, a test shaft 17 M deep was excavated through a weathering profile of the granitic rock which is the substratum of.

Since laboratory tests on small specimens are often inadequate to predict the deformability of rock masses, in situ tests are necessary. There are various types of in situ tests, including plate bearing, flatjack, pressure chamber, borehole jacking and dilatometer tests.

Introduction In many countries, the number of construction works for large scale structures has increased recently, and stability-based designs are being replaced with displacement-based designs.

The book is based on the author's extensive experience and offers a single source of information for the evaluation of rock properties. It systematically describes the classification and characterization of intact rock, rock discontinuities, and rock masses, and presents the various indirect methods for estimating the deformability, strength.

In-situ R ock Tests are done to determine in-situ stresses & deformation characteristics and shear strength of jointed rock mass or critically weak seams within the rock mass, residual stresses within the rock mass, anchor capacities, and rock mass permeability.

In-situ tests are often the best means for determining the engineering properties. The PROBEX e rock pressuremeter or dilatometer is a radially expandable borehole probe used to determine in situ the deformability of rock mass and the creep properties of very soft rock.

Pressure meter test is mainly intended to measure in situ rock deformability around a borehole drilled in rock masses by applying hydrostatic pressure to the borehole wall. Pressure meter test is a method to investigate rock properties and / or rock conditions based on the relation between cavity pressure and radial displacement of borehole.

Abstract. The article offers in situ test methods for cohesion and internal friction angle in rocks and at joints. Technologies and instrumentation for shearing of rock wedges in an open pit mine and for laser scanning and digital imaging of local falls and breaks of inaccessible rock blocks in pitwalls have been developed and approved for constructing a limit equilibrium equation and for.At a point where in-situ stress is zero, joints are formed in the rocks and it will ease the underground excavations, constructions etc.

but if In-situ stress is very high, any small disturbance to the stress field by tunnelling or even excavation may trigger violent release of stored energy in rock and cause failure.Section Name: Rock Mechanics (CED 48) Designator of Legally Binding Document: IS Title of Legally Binding Document: Code of practice for in-situ determination of rock mass deformability using a flexible dilatometer, Part 1: volume change.
