... and uniaxial dataset from Bingham Canyon is presented for a quartzite. The dataset is exceptionally complete in terms of the number of tests conducted (total of 217 uniaxial and triaxial tests) and the detail in test data quality and characterization of the specimens. The results show that triaxial data...

The powerhouse complex of Stage II is proposed to be located 180 m downstream of the Stage I powerhouse and is located inside a hillock rising to a maximum EL 1150 m to generate 450 MW of hydro power. The rock formations present in the hillock consist of hard quartzite...

However, the "Brazilian theory" sand-grain tensile strengths are greater than the tensile strengths measured for pure quartz crystals, and tensile strengths computed for quartzite using the Griffith theory. Thus, the Hertzian theory gives results for the tensile strengths...
