The uniaxial compressive strength of the rock constitutes the highest strength limit of the actual rock mass ISRM 1981 has defined the uniaxial strength of a rock to samples of 50 mm diameter A rock is however a fabric of minerals and grains bound or welded together The rock therefore includes microscopic cracks and fissures

The peak stress is the strength of the rock – It may fail catastrophically if the load frame is soft Example below is for a stiff frame The compressive strength of rock is a function of the confining pressure As the confining pressure increases so does the strength Goodman Intro to Rock

Increasing confining pressure P c alone will result in a decrease of rock volume or compaction In contrast increasing the pore pressure P p tends to increase rock volume P p counteracts the effects of P c Thus rock properties are controlled largely by the difference between P c and P p or the differential pressure P d A more exact form will account for the interaction of the fluid
