In rock mechanics design, complicated stress fields are often encountered.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained.

Active Risk Management

For more information, contact: Under these conditions, tensile strength should be obtained asfm the presence of compressive stresses as is what occurs in this test to be representative of the field conditions. Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself assure reliable results.

This test determines the splitting tensile strength of rock by diametral line compression of asym disk e3967 rock. The procedures used do not consider material variation, purpose for obtaining the data, special purpose studies, or any considerations for the user’s objectives; and it is common practice to increase or reduce significant digits of reported data to be commensurate with these considerations.


Under such conditions, the tensile strength should be obtained with the presence of compressive stresses to be representative of the field conditions.

A uniform test is also needed to make sure that e3967 disk specimens break diametrically due to tensile stresses perpendicular to the loading diameter. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Circular disk with a thickness-to-diameter ratio between 0.

Furthermore, engineers involved in rock mechanics design usually deal with complicated stress fields, including various combinations of compressive and tensile stress fields.

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units, which are provided for information only and are not considered standard. This test is a simpler and less expensive alternative to the direct tensile test method. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of d367 some of those factors. Also, by testing r3967 different diametrical directions, possible variations in tensile strength for anisotropic rocks can be determined.


However, the direct tensile test is difficult and expensive for routine application.

The splitting tensile test appears to offer a desirable alternative, because it r3967 much simpler and inexpensive. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The diameter shall be at least 10 times greater than the largest mineral grain constituent. Reporting of test results in units other than SI shall not be regarded as nonconformance with this test method.

ASTM D, Test equipment Controls

It is beyond the scope of this standard to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. Enough samples to represent a valid average of the type of rock under consideration; however the standard recommends Rock testing Back to Results Print.

Since it is widely used in practice, a uniform test method is needed for data to be comparable. Rock aetm Lab Services: The quality of the results produced by this standard is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used.
