# rock elastic modulus

• Elastic modulus

An elastic modulus (also known as modulus of elasticity) is a quantity that measures an object or substance''s resistance to being deformed elastically (i.e., non-permanently) when a stress is applied to it. The elastic modulus of an object is defined as the slope of its stress–strain curve in the elastic deformation region: A stiffer material will have a higher elastic modulus.

• HOW TO ESTIMATE STRENGTH AND MODULUS OF …

· Strength and Modulus of Weathered Rock from SPT Values In the weathered rock it is difficult to drive the split sampler to the full specified depth as in soil. Hence we may estimate the strength and elastic modulus values of weathered rock by driving the spt apparatus for a fixed number of blows and find the penetration.

• Foundations

Elasticity refers to the property of reversibility of deformation when subjected to a load. Many fresh, hard rocks are elastic when considered as laboratory specimens. But on the field scale rocks can be expected to contain fractures, fissures, bedding planes, contacts, zones of altered rock and clays with plastic properties.
