Santiago Shale UCS Research data
X-Ray Diffraction, X-Ray Fluorescence raw data, and Uniaxial Compression test data. The microstructure and mechanical properties of a highly tectonically deformed calcareous shale were investigated using uniaxial compressive tests at ambient temperature and pressure. UCS data reveal different elastic, deformation, and ultimate strengths for each mutually orthogonal direction.
Steps to reproduce
Analyze tabulated mechanical data for mechanical properties characterization. X-ray diffraction data is provided for interpretation and semiquantitative calculations.
