Rock Mechanics is a branch of geotechnical engineering and includes the theoretical and applied sciences of the mechanical behaviour of rock and rock masses. Rock testing includes laboratory as well as field testing and allows for methods of computation and field observation of structural behavior. Slopes, tunneling, dams foundations and surface constructions requires the characterization of involved rocks and the analysis of their reaction to induced stresses.Read More...
Used to grind and polish rock and concrete specimens, natural stones, ceramic materials, etc. Proposed in two versions.
This universal saw, completed with the suitable accessories, can be used to cut concrete and rock cores, and irregular rock samples in order to obtain geometrically defined samples. It can be fit with 300 to 450 mm dia. blades.
This apparatus was originally developed at Imperial College, London, by Professor E. Hoek. It is a simple and practical method of determining the strength and slope stability of rock, both in the field and in the laboratory.
The apparatus consists of a load frame 60 kN cap. with a hydraulic loading ram actuated by a hand pump. The frame is adjustable for testing samples up to 102 mm dia.
NG-CoreTrim is used to obtain rock samples perfectly machined (cube, prisms, etc) from irregular rock or core pieces. It is supplied complete with a proper vice to hold irregular pieces firmly in place up to 7x14
