2014-12-11  3.2 POINT LOAD TEST (PLT) The Point Load Test is also known as the Franklin test. The first reference is by Reichmuth, D. (1968) [10], who proposed obtaining the resistance to a point load and a determination of the unconfined compression strength via correlation, regardless of whether they are irregular, regular, or cylindrical rock controls [11].

Laboratory Testing and Interpretation of Rock Properties

2012-5-29  The laboratory determination of intact rock strength is accomplished by the following tests: point load index, unconfined compression, triaxial compression, Brazilian test, and direct shear. The uniaxial (or unconfined) compression test provides the general reference value, having a respective analogy with standard tests on concrete cylinders .

[9] performed the point load test on large specimens and revised the size correlation chart commonly used to reference point load values from cores with differing diameters to the standard size of 50 mm. With this new correction, they found the ratio of UCS to Is(50) to be approximately 29.

2015-9-22  The unconfined compressive strength (UCS) of rock is a basic parameter for the design of foundations resting on rock. However, it is often very difficult to retrieve intact rock core specimens for the UCS test due to mechanical breaking or natural fracturing of the rock core during the drilling process. In such cases, it becomes obligatory to correlate UCS values based on the point load ...
