Applicability Of The Hoek-Brown Failure Criterion And The Effect Of The Anisotropy On Intact Rock Samples From Athens Schist
Organization: The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy
Jan 1, 2004
The anisotropic behaviour of Athens Schist has been brought out through the testing of specimens with varying orientation of schistosity with respect to the major principal stress under uniaxial, triaxial and dynamic conditions. A large number of results from tests on intact rock specimens of the Athens Schist were statistically analysed and evaluated.
