  • The point load test for weak rock in dredging applications

    The point load test is shown useful for weak/saturated rocks which are commonly encountered in mechanical dredging operation. To support the dredging use of the point load test orginally intended to obtain a field strenth index for hard rock materials a comparative testing program was initiated which included more than four hundred rock tests.

    Point Load test is an alternate method that can be used to adequately predict the uniaxial compressive strength of a rock material using a portable and simpler equipment. Schmidt Hammer Rebound test is also a technique used for this purpose but it is admitted that its results are far more variable and affected by testing methods.
