Abstract

The physical and mechanical properties of the andesite forming much of the island of Gökçeada (Imbros), Turkey, were investigated using 54 mm samples cores from 12 blocks obtained from a quarry. The results were evaluated using regression analysis and good empirical relationships were obtained.

Keywords

Andesite Uniaxial compressive strength Point load strength Ultrasonic pulse velocity Gökçeada Imbros 

Résumé

Les propriétés physiques et mécaniques des andésites formant la plus grande partie de l’île de Gökçeada (Imbros) en Turquie ont été établies à partir de carottes de 54 mm de diamètre venant de douze blocs prélevés en carrière. Les résultats ont été analysés en faisant appel aux analyses de régression et des relations avec des formules empiriques ont été obtenues.

Mots clés

Andésite Résistance à la compression simple Résistance entre pointes Vitesse ultrasonique Gökçeada Imbros
