Dilatometer testing in engineering rock mechanics

Ivan Vrkljan, Boris Kavur, Karmen Fifer-Bizjak

Abstract

Experience gained in the use of various dilatometer types in rock testing is presented. In addition to theoretical background information, the authors present recommendations for the use of individual dilatometer types depending on rock mass deformability. The significance of interpretation of measurement results and proper use of resulting information is emphasized. Measurement results obtained by different dilatometer types on a number of locations are analyzed. The correlation between the dilatometer module and the modules originating from big in situ limestone tests is established.
