Laboratory rock testing services

img_0016SMCOY offers laboratory services for testing of mechanical properties of rock.  Our laboratory facilities are located in Rauma, western Finland. We follow ISRM standards or other required  standards and promise to offer you fast testing with high quality reporting for moderate price. Our laboratory services include:

  • Uniaxial Compressive Strength testing of rock
  • Triaxial Compressive Strength testing of rock
  • Point Load index strength
  • Fracture toughness in Mode I and II
  • Subcritical crack growth properties
  • Joint compressive strength (JCS)
  • Direct shear testing of rock joints (in normal load or constant normal stiffness boundary conditions)
  • Crack Initiation (CI) and Crack Damage (CD) strength determination
  • Isotropic and anisotropic elastic properties (Poisson value and Young’s modulus)
  • Indirect rock strength testing using Brazilian disk method
  • Dry and Saturated density, Water content and Porosity
  • Mineralogical and petrographic composition and rock type name
  • Thermal expansion factor and thermophysical properties
  • Drillability and CERCHAR Abrasivity Test (CAI) tests
  • Manufacturing of concrete replicas of rock joints for testing purposes
  • Dynamic and static deformation modulus also under compression (subcontracted through our well established contacts)
