Prediction of the uniaxial compressive strength of

Uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) is an important mechanical parameter for stability assessments in rock mass engineering. In practice, obtaining the UCS simply, accurately and economically has attracted substantial attention.

Uniaxial Compressive Strength an overview

The uniaxial compressive strength of a rock under static loading often decreases with an increasing temperature at which the rock has been heat-treated before strength testing. This conclusion is drawn from a great number of experiments [1,2,4,8,9,11,17–19].The higher the temperature is, the lower the strength. Some results for uniaxial compressive strength σ c and tensile strength σ t
