Abstract:

Results are described for three tasks in a continuing analytical study of rocks and soils Shock conditioning - post-shot measurements show gradual degradation of rock media physical properties as the range from underground nuclear events decreases. General model for rocks and soils Failure model for rocks - triaxial extension and compression failure data for granite and limestone cannot be fit by one curve in maximum shear stress vs pressure plots.
