Experimental Study on Mechanical Characteristics of Deformation of Red Sandstone
For geotechnical engineering, it has great significance to research the mechanical characteristics of rock mass under three dimensional stresses. Through triaxial compression failure test, the characteristics of stress-strain curve and deformation of red sandstone from Sichuan under different confining pressures has been analyzed. The results show that: with the increment of confining pressure, the failure mode of rock mass changes from brittle failure to ductile failure gradually, and an obvious yield platform appears near the peak strength of stress-strain curve; the elastic modulus, deformation modulus, peak strain and residual strain of rock sample increase with the increment of confining pressure, the elastic modulus and deformation modulus are not a fixed value, and the relation between deformation parameter and confining pressure can be fit through quadratic curve.
