Abstract

Transit pulse wave times through a weakly cemented sandstone rock being measured on prismatic specimens with and without initial plane of weakness, which is uniaxially loaded at different stages. The velocity, Elastic moduli bulk compressibility, and vertical strain were calculated for each loading level. Results have shown, that such rock properties have changed dramatically. Thus they should be considered thoroughly for any engineering evaluation in such rock type.

Simultaneous Velocity Measurements with Uniaxial Loading on Weak Sandstone from Iraq

Transit pulse wave times through a weakly cemented sandstone rock being measured on prismatic specimens with and without initial plane of weakness, which is uniaxially loaded at different stages. The velocity, Elastic moduli bulk compressibility, and vertical strain were calculated for each loading level. Results have shown, that such rock properties have changed dramatically. Thus they should be considered thoroughly for any engineering evaluation in such rock type.
