Investigation on Shear Creep Mechanical Properties of Soft Rock
The construction of slope or underground engineering often encounters soft rocks, which control the stability of rock engineering, with obvious characteristics of rheology. Under step load conditon, the shear creep test of argillaceous siltstone is performed by using the RMT150c rock and soil mechanics testing machine. Testing results show that the amount of creep deformation for argillaceous siltstone is big enough, which should be taken into consideration for analysis of stability or design of slope or underground engineering. Based on testing results, the long-term shear strength parameters are determined to provide theory basis for engineering survey and design.
