Testing the shear strength of soft rock at different stages of laboratory simulated weathering

Goran Vlastelica, Predrag Miščević, Nataša Pavić

Abstract

Determination of the change in strength based on simulation of weathering process in laboratory conditions is described in the paper, using marl samples taken from flysch formations in the region of Dalmatia. The testing has revealed that the proposed weathering simulation in laboratory can be conducted within acceptable time frames. Because of the observed change of shear strength parameters as related to values corresponding to the strength of material described as soil, it is sometimes necessary to use soil testing devices so as to take into account the load range applied in individual types of testing devices.
