1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the deformability and strength of large in situ specimens of rock by a uniaxial compressive test. The test results take into account the effect of both intact material behavior and the behavior of discontinuities contained within the specimen block.
1.2 This test method does not cover which type of specimen should be tested or whether anisotropic factors should be considered. The specifics of the test program need to be developed prior to testing and possibly even before sampling. Such specifics would be dependent on the intended use of the data, as well as any budgetary constraints and other factors, which are outside the scope of this test method.
1.3 Theoretically there is no limit to the size of the test specimen; however, size will be controlled by the strength of the test specimen relative to the capacity of any loading apparatus and bearing capacity of the surface the apparatus must react against. Furthermore, the orientation and strength of discontinuities relative to the specimen geometry will be a factor limiting specimen size too.
1.4 All observed and calculated values shall conform to the guidelines for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D6026.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.6 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 limitations prior to use.
