Abstract
Abstract Knowledge of the variations caused by high temperature to the mechanical properties is a vital asset in processes such as underground coal gasification (UCG), in-situ disposal of nuclear waste and during the recovery of geothermal. The study can also provide valuable insights during the restoration of fire-damaged buildings. Due to the presence of heat, changes in rock morphology and mineralogy lead to a substantial change in the geomechanical properties of rock. Effect of high temperatures (1000 °C) on the tensile and compressive strength of a fine-grained Indian Sandstone have been analysed in this study. Induced ductility, observed at temperatures above 500 °C causes the rock to exhibit properties similar to that of a plastic material. The geomechanical properties decrease sharply beyond 500 °C, which has been referred to as the critical temperature of the rock. Beyond the critical temperature, internal structure of the rock undergoes considerable damage in the form of microcracks and fissures created due to phase transition of quartz at 573 °C and generation of thermal stress. Change in internal structure and mineralogy have been analysed by performing XRD (X-ray powder diffraction) and FDXM (Four-dimensional X-ray microscopy) studies. With the help of FDXM, change in porosity of rock has been analysed by studying the variation in connected and non-connected pores.

Abstract Heating at high temperature will make the tensile strength of sandstone change due to the loss of water and minerals and the effect of thermal stress. In this paper, the sandstone samples are heated from room temperature to 900 °C in a high temperature furnace and then are subjected to Brazilian test with a computer-controlled hydraulic universal testing machine. The longitudinal wave velocity, total energy absorbed per unit thickness of disc and mass loss rate are comprehensively inves...

Abstract This paper experimentally studied the changes in mechanical and porous characteristics of limestone heated to high temperature (up to 600 °C). The results showed that ① 200 °C and 500 °C are two special temperature point of limestone under the high temperature effect, and the most mechanical and pore parameters change a lot before and after them; ② Below 200 °C, the mechanical and porous characteristics of limestone samples hardly change; ③ In 200–500 °C, the cumulative pore volume, por...

Abstract Microcracking induced by wide fluctuations in temperature affects granite quality and durability, making the stone more vulnerable to decay. Determining the extent of that effect is not always straightforward, however, given the excellent durability of these materials. Four types of construction granite quarried in the region of Madrid, Spain, and frequently used in both the built heritage and in de novo construction (Alpedrete, Cadalso de los Vidrios, Colmenar Viejo and Zarzalejo) were...

This study falls in the context of underground coal fires where burning coal can elevate the temperature of a rock mass in excess of 1000°. The objective of the research is to experimentally characterize the change in mechanical behaviour, mineralogy and microstructural texture of two sedimentary rocks when subjected to temperatures up to 1200 °C for 24 h. Specimens of local sandstone and mudstone were comprehensively characterized by X-ray diffraction and thermal-gravimetric analysis. These ana...

Abstract The changes of mineral components, internal structure and water content of the rock after heating lead to the variation of the physical and mechanical properties. This paper aims to study the thermal effect (from 25 °C to 500 °C) on physical and mechanical properties (such as mass, density, porosity, P-wave velocity, compressive strength, peak strain, elastic modulus) of rock. A lot of reported results about it were summarized and many complementary tests have been carried out, the resu...

Abstract Temperature is an important factor that influences physical and mechanical properties of rocks. This paper studies the physical and mechanical behaviors of a thermal-damaged coarse marble in uniaxial compression tests. Specimens are heated to 200, 400, and 600 °C and then cooled down to room temperature (25 °C) for testing. When the specimens are exposed to high temperatures, their color changes significantly and many microcracks are generated in the specimens. As the applied temperatur...

In this research, the failure mechanism and anomalous behavior of intact and jointed rock block having a circular tunnel under compression are studied. This was done by monitoring the progressive failure of a rock tunnel subjected to uniaxial loading. The tests were conducted in sandstone blocks and “Acoustic Emission” (AE) technique was used to identify the crack damage and other failure attributes. Three cases have been considered in the research, i.e. tunnel in the intact rock, with horizonta...

Rock cracking caused by thermal shocking occurs widely in geothermal exploitation processes, such as wellbore drilling, reservoir stimulation, and long-term geothermal extraction. In this study, the permeability, P-wave velocity, uniaxial compressive strength, and tensile strength of granite subjected to heating (100 ~ 300℃) and cooling in water with different temperatures (0 ~ 60℃) were experimentally investigated. Moreover, the evolution of temperature field, cooling rate, and temperature grad...

The effect of exposure to high temperature on rock strength is a topic of interest in many engineering fields. In general, rock strength is known to decrease as temperature increases. The most common test used to evaluate the rock strength is the uniaxial compressive strength test (UCS). It can only be carried out in laboratory and presents some limitations in terms of the number, type and preparation of the samples. Such constrains are more evident in case of rocks from historical monuments aff...

Abstract null null Strength behavior of thermally-damaged rock is quite different from that of undamaged or intact rock. In this study, a concept of degradation of geological strength index (GSI) is used and a GSI-softening model in the framework of generalized Hoek-Brown (H B) failure criterion is proposed to characterize the strength behavior of thermally-damaged rock. The proposed GSI-softening model is then verified using several sets of test data collected from previous publications. It is ...

With the increasing depth of coalbed methane (CBM) exploitation, temperature becomes the main factor affecting the efficiency of CBM exploitation. The change of temperature has significant influence on the mineral composition and pore structure of coal. To study the effects of thermal treatment on mineral composition and pore structure of coal, X-ray diffraction (XRD) test, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) test, and mercury intrusion test were carried out for three groups of coal. The mineral ...

During the underground coal gasification process, a large amount of heat will be released, causing the surrounding rock in the goaf to undergo a high-temperature baking process. Therefore, it is essential to study the pyrolysis characteristics and mechanism of rocks. In this paper, the red sandstone in Linyi city of China is taken as an example. According to the results of thermogravimetric analysis in argon and air, the thermokinetic parameters are calculated by non isothermal pyrolysis kinetic...
