Rock Mechanical Properties of Granite/ Clay/ Basalts/ Argillite / Glass and its Alterations at Different Temperatures-A Review

P.M Diaz;


This paper presents a review of the effect of temperature in altering the rigid mechanical properties of materials like granite, clay, basalt, argillite and glass. Mechanical properties such as elasticity, stress, porosity, tensile strength and permeability of the materials were analysed at various temperatures. The analysis highlights the results and conclusions derived from numerous experimental works like tri-axial compression test, uniaxial test, etc. Apart from this, the impact of temperature on physical characteristics like colour, porosity, wave propagation and density were also studied. The main feature of this study is to showcase the acceptable range of temperature of the materials so as to avoid cracking and breaking of the materials during engineering applications. Moreover some back up techniques have been suggested to enhance the quality and strength of the materials.
