ROCK TESTING

The individual tests used in the above predictive tests are described here:

*Physical Properties

 (the results of non destructive tests)

*Mechanical properties

 (the results of destructive tests)

*Abrasiveness

*Toughness

*Drillability

*Empirical correlations and predictions

*Splitting Tensile Strength of Intact Rock Core

 (ASTM 3967)

Our Laboratory has acquired the latest technology in rock testing with a unique assemblage of equipment.

The primary aim of this specialist rock testing laboratory is to predict the performance of rock excavating equipment under various geological conditions.

1/7

We have suites of tests to predict the performance of  the following equipment under different  geological conditions :

  • Diamond Drilling

  • Percussive Drilling – DTH

  • Percussive Drilling – Top Hammer

  • Raise and Shaft Drilling over 2 m diameter

  • Raise borders under 3 m diameter

  • Road Headers

  • Rotary Drilling

  • Trenching

  • Tunnel Boring Machines
