Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Overcoring and large block tests indicate that intact rocks are disturbed upon removal from outcrops so that their laboratory properties are not the same as their in situ properties. The disturbance occurs during strain relaxation for which there are general characteristics as listed in this note.
