    Method C, uniaxial compressive strength of rock is used in many design formulas and is sometimes used as an index property to select the appropriate excavation technique. Deformation and strength of rock are known to be functions of confining pressure. Method A, triaxial compression test, is commonly used to simulate the stress conditions under which most underground rock masses exist.

  • Uniaxial Compressive Strength

    The uniaxial compressive strength of a rock under static loading often decreases with an increasing temperature at which the rock has been heattreated before strength testing. This conclusion is drawn from a great number of experiments [1,2,4,8,9,11,17–19].The higher the temperature is, the lower the strength.

  • EFFECT OF THE UNIAXIAL COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF THE ROCK .

    Uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) of a rock is one of the most important parameters representing the bearing capacity of rock mass. Its variation is explained by a number of factors including mineral composition. It can be also defined as the threshold value for a rock and/or any other material to be failure under the external forces.
