Summary

In this subject students are at the first acquaint with relation between rock mass – rock samples – rock specimen. In the chapter physical properties are definition of different rock properties, their measurement and using in practical calculations. Soil classification according grain size and according water content, which influence soil behaviour. Mechanical properties mean in the first place strength characteristics. Strength properties are estimated for simple loading, like compressive, tensile shear loading and also for combined loading.
