Application of p-wave velocity for prediction of strength properties of rocks
2013 (English)In: 8th International Scientific Conference on Modern Management of Mine Producing, Geology and Environmental Protection (SGEM 2008): Albena, Bulgaria, 16 - 20 June 2008, Red Hook: Curran Associates, Inc., 2013, Vol. 1, 365-368 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, the relationship between p-wave velocity and the most important strength properties of rock material has been studied. During this research eight various types of rocks from north-west of Iran have been tested view pointed of uniaxial compression strength (UCS), tensile strength (Brazilian test) and elastic modulus. Regression analyses between above parameters and p-wave velocity reveals that there is a mathematical relationship with exponential equation (R2= 0.8597) between p-wave velocity and uniaxial compression strength of tested rocks. Also, the obtained results show that with increasing of p-wave velocity the tensile strength (Brazilian test) of samples increases exponentially (R2= 0.8613) and the elastic modulus increases logarithmically (R2= 0.9231).
