The purpose of this study was to supplement the information being obtained for the area evaluation study by the U. S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Organization SAMSO. It was necessary to determine the properties of the specific materals for 1 evaluation of the area as a hard rock medium 2 utilization in the various computer codes for ground-motion predictions and 3 as necessary, for design of structures in the medium. Results of tests on cores from Iron, Madison, Saint Francois, and Wayne Counties, near Scott Air Force Base, Missouri, are reported. Tests were conducted to determine the following 1 relative hardness Schmidt number, 2 specific gravity, 3 unconfined compressive strength from conventional and cyclic compression tests, 4 dynamic moduli, 5 sonic velocity, and 6 petrography.
