### Uniaxial Compressive Strength - an overview ...

Uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) is a key physical test relevant to iron ore crusher design and rock geomechanics for mining. Tests are typically performed on intact lengths of NQ, HQ, or PQ diamond drill core and record the maximum axial load sustained at the point of failure. The International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) standard terminology for UCS is very low (<

### Micromechanical modelling of the mechanical …

In the present study, the uniaxial compressive strength of the granite, obtained from micromechanical modelling, is regarded as the maximum axial compressive stress during crack growth. In the micromechanical modelling, several microscopic material coefficients are required. The initial crack length, 2 c, is the most critical one. A simple way to determine the initial crack length is scaling ...
