Abstract:

A ONE-MILLION POUND COMPRESSION REACTION LOADER IS REQUIRED TO OPERATE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE WATERWAYS EXPERIMENT STATION 6-KBAR TRIAXIAL TEST DEVICE. TERRA TEK HAS DESIGNED AND CONSTRUCTED SIMILAR TEST SYSTEMS FOR IN-HOUSE TESTING. TERRA TEK HAS ALSO DEVELOPED UNIQUE COMPUTER CONTROL CODES SPECIFICALLY FOR ROCK MECHANICS APPLICATIONS. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DESIGN A COMPRESSION REACTION LOADER AND DEVELOP A COMPATIBLE COMPUTER CONTROL SYSTEM THAT BUILD ON THE EXISTING TERRA TEK SYSTEMS TO PROVIDE CAPABILITY IN AUTOMATED ROCK MECHANICS TESTING THAT GOES BEYOND THE CAPABILITY OF ANY EXISTING SYSTEM. THE RESULTING SYSTEM TO BE BUILT UNDER PHASE II WILL PROVIDE CAPABILITY TO PERFORM COMPLEX STRAIN-PATH TESTS, AS WELL AS ROUTINE TRIAXIAL ROCK MECHANICS TESTS.
