Abstract:

The report covers the second year period of a program to investigate the mechanical behavior of rock under cyclic loading. Results are presented of cyclic fatigue studies of two rocks in uniaxial compression, three rocks in cyclic tension, and one rock in both triaxial compression and tension- compression. Further studies into the mechanism of fatigue and its relationship to other material properties are also presented and discussed.
