Abstract:

The report documents the results of a series of static and dynamic uniaxial strain tests conducted on a sawdust-sand mixture developed by Gulf Radiation Technology GRT. The mixture was developed by GRT in an attempt to determine the response of tuff at extremely high stress levels megabar range by laboratory testing a material at a low-pressure range 0 to 70 bars. The purpose of the tests documented in this report was to determine the uniaxial strain loading and unloading response over the 0- to 70-bar stress range.
