Geotechnical and mineralogical properties of weak rocks from Central Greece

Thirty bulk samples of hard soils-soft rocks such as marls, originating from Euboea Island and Peloponnesus area, were investigated to evaluate their geotechnical behavior. Specifically, by conducting a series of physical and geotechnical tests, such as liquid limit and plastic limit tests, along with the estimation of the grain size fraction, Slake Durability and Point Load Test.

Certain parameters were determined and used for empirical correlations with their mineralogical characteristics. The mineralogical composition was determined by X-ray diffraction, thermo-gravimetric and thermal analysis, succeeded by textural analysis performed by Optical Microscope.

With the help of the above mentioned tests, we interpreted the observed geotechnical behavior of the examined weak rocks by means of mineralogical composition and texture. Durability and the unconfined compressive strength was found to be influenced by high percentages in carbonate minerals.

In addition, it was found that a decrease in clay content resulted in higher strength and durability values. The concluded empirical correlations verified the influence of these parameters and gave a general overview of the engineering behavior of the examined weak rocks.

ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF SOILS AND ROCKS - 4TH EDITION

Engineering Properties of Soils and Rocks, Third Edition serves as a guide to the engineering properties and behavior of soils and rocks. The text also complements other texts on rock and soil mechanics. The book covers topics such as the properties and classification of soils such as tills and other kinds of soils related to cold climates, tropical soils, and organic soils such as peat. The text also includes the engineering behavior and properties, classification and description, discontinuities, and weathering of rocks and rock masses. The monograph is recommended for engineers who would like to know about the properties of soils and rocks and the application of their study in the field of engineering.

The variations of parameters including the index properties, the hydraulics, the strength and stiffness, the compressibility for residual soils, the unconfined compressive strength, the point load strength index, the abrasivity, and slake durability index for rocks are derived from laboratory tests based on samples from different depths of different borelogs. Statistical information including the average mean values, the standard deviations and the coefficient of variations are provided for these parameters. It is hoped that these statistics will provide useful reference and insights for future projects involving in BTG Formation.

This book provides a working knowledge of the engineering properties and behaviour of the different soil and rock types. Extensive data are provided on individual soil and rock types, including their composition, texture, degree of weathering, and the presence of fissures or discontinuities. It also considers the description and classification of soils and rocks. The fourth edition has been extensively revised and enlarged, with four new chapters on: silt, loess and brickearth; igneous and metamorphic rock; arenaceous and argillaceous rocks; and carbonate and evaporitic rocks. The chapters on rock types consider their durability as well as their geomechanical properties and behaviour.
