• ##### 8. STRENGTH OF SOILS AND ROCKS

For the uniaxial or unconfined compressive strength test a right circular cylinder of the material is compressed between the platens of a testing machine as illustrated in Fig. 8.1. The compressive strength is then defined as the maximum load applied to crush the specimen divided by the cross-sectional area. Rock strength has been found to be size dependent because of the cracks and fissures that are often present in the material. This is illustrated from the results of tests on three rock types in Fig. 8.2. The size dependancy is also found to exist for stiff fissured clays, as illustrated in Fig. 8.3 for London clay. Rocks with parallel arrangements of minerals or joints have been found to be noticeably anisotropic (different strengths in different directions). This particularly applies to metamorphic rocks as illustrated in Fig. 8.4. Strength testing of rock …
