Among the different strength parameters, Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS) is most frequently used in rock mechanics and is usually determined through a laboratory test.
Unconfined compressive strength (UCS) decreases with decreasing loading rate while Young's modulus (E) increases non-linearly with increasing confining pressure.
Both the MSBU and SBU are made to bore through a variety of rock strengths and types with an unconfined compressive strength of 4,000 psi to more than 25,000 psi.
Regression Equations for Other Parameters The regression equations for parameters other than the ultimate compressive stress and ultimate axial strain can also be modeled with just two coefficients of regression, one for the inverse of slenderness ratio and the other for the ratio between FRP confining pressure and the unconfined compressive strength of concrete.
Both the MSBU and SBU are made to bore through a variety of rock strengths and types with an Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS) of 4,000 psi to over 25,000 psi.
Unconfined compressive strength is not always a good measure of the point at which rock will fail in an HDD drilling environment.
