On Applicability of Some Indirect Tests for Estimation of Tensile Strength of Anisotropic Rocks

F. Rastegar; H. R. Nejati; A. Ghazvinian; M. R. Hadei; A. Nazerigivi

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 711-720


  The tensile strength of rocks plays a noteworthy role in their failure mechanism, and its determination can be beneficial in optimizing the design of the rock structures. Schistose rocks due to their inherent anisotropy in different foliation directions show a diverse strength at each direction. The ...  Read More

A New Method for Predicting Indirect Tensile Strength of Sandstone Rock Samples

H. Fattahi

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 899-908


  The tensile strength (σt) of a rock plays an important role in the reliable construction of several civil structures such as dam foundations and types of tunnels and excavations. Determination of σt in the laboratory can be expensive, difficult, and time-consuming for certain projects. Due ...  Read More

Rock Mechanics
Effect of temperature as well as heating and cooling cycles on rock properties

M. Hosseini

Volume 8, Issue 4 , October 2017, , Pages 631-644


  Temperature has a significant role in many actions performed on rocks. An example would be the effect of temperature on rocks in the burial of nuclear waste, geothermal energy extraction, deep oil well drilling, and fires in tunnels. In addition, due to diurnal/nocturnal as well as seasonal temperature ...  Read More
