• Basic measure of the compressive strength of rock at zero confining stress.
  • Can be used extensively for correlating geomechanical parameters and adds value for predictive capabilities.
  • Monitoring the stress-strain behavior during the test provides elastic properties (Young’s Modulus, Poisson’s Ratio).

Recommended Sample Dimensions:

  • Length: 2” Diameter : 1”
  • Length 3” Diameter: 1.5”
