    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This test method covers the preparation, equipment, test procedure, and data documentation for determining in situ creep characteristics of a rock mass using a rigid plate loading method.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This test method covers the preparation, equipment, test procedure, and data documentation for determining in situ creep characteristics of a rock mass using a rigid plate loading method.

    1.2This test method is designed to be conducted in an adit or small underground chamber; however, with suitable modifications, this test could be conducted at the surface.

    1.3The test is usually conducted parallel or perpendicular to the anticipated axis of thrust, as dictated by the design load or other orientations, based upon the application.

    1.4Flexible plate apparatus can be used if the anticipated creep displacement is within the tolerance of the travel of the flat jacks.

    1.5Units—The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Reporting of test results in units other than inch-pound shall not be regarded as nonconformance with this standard.

    1.5.1The gravitational system of inch-pound units is used when dealing with inch-pound units. In the system, the pound (lbf) represents a unit of force (weight), while the units for mass is slugs. The slug unit is not given, unless dynamic (F = ma) calculations are involved.

    1.6All observed and calculated values shall conform to the guidelines for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D6026, unless superseded by this test method.

    1.6.1For purposes of comparing a measured or calculated value(s) with specified limits, the measured or calculated value(s) shall be rounded to the nearest decimal of significant digits in the specified limit.

    1.6.2The procedures used to specify how data are collected/recorded and calculated in the standard are regarded as the industry standard. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained. The procedures used do not consider material variation, purpose for obtaining the data, special purpose studies, or any considerations for the user’s objectives; and it is common practice to increase or reduce significant digits of reported data to be commensurate with these considerations. It is beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering data.

    1.7This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precaution statements, see Section 8.

    1.8This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
