Description / Abstract:

(Footnote *)

This test method covers the determination of the strength of cylindrical rock core specimens in an undrained state under triaxial compression loading. The test provides data useful in determining the strength of rock, namely: shear strengths at various lateral pressures and temperatures, angle of internal friction, (angle of shearing resistance), cohesion intercept, and Young's modulus. It should be observed that this method makes no provision for pore pressure measurements. Thus the strength values determined are in terms of total stress, that is, not corrected for pore pressures.

All observed and calculated values shall conform to the guidelines for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D 6026.

The method used to specify how data are collected, calculated, or recorded in this standard is not directly related to the accuracy to which the data can be applied in design or other uses, or both. How one applies the results obtained using this standard is beyond its scope.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

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 requirements prior to use.
