Fracture Mechanical Properties of Rocks and Mortar/Rock Interfaces

Abstract
This study has determined the fracture mechanical properties of 9 types of rock, namely fine-, medium- and coarse-grained granites, gneiss, quartzite, diabase, gabbro, and fine- and coarse-grained limestones. Test results show among other things that quartzite has the highest compressive strength and fracture energy, while diabase has the highest splitting tensile strength and modulus of elasticity. Furthermore, the strength and fracture energy of the interfacial zone between the rocks and 6 different mortars have been determined. The results showed that, in this investigation, the mortar/rock interfaces are in most cases weaker than both mortars and rocks.
