Abstract:

The mechanical and physical properties of tuffs and grouts from the Nevada Test Site were determined. The tests performed include unconfined compression, triaxial compression, and uniaxial strain tests. More specialized tests such as cycled burst tests to study the phenomena of residual stress buildup and triaxial creep tests to study the viscoelastic properties of tuffs and grouts were performed. The relationships between fracturing and ultrasonic velocities were also investigated.
