Research project: Static and cyclic load compression tests under controlled climatic conditions

Matthew A PerrasSimon LoewKerry Leith We aim to advance the frontier of progressive rock failure combining laboratory data derived from new custom built creep testing machines (capable of regulating temperature, humidity, and mechanical load over at least 100 days) with measurements from existing field equipment. Initial testing will be focused on unique natural and man-made […]
