uniaxial compressive strength of Limestone:

DETERMINATION OF UNIAXIAL COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF
Uniaxial Compressive Strength (UCS) defines mechanical strength of the intact rock material and it is one of the most used parameters in rock engineering. In the laboratory, it is determined by uniaxial compression on circular cylinder specimens according to standardized test procedures [1, 2].
