... ABSTRACT: It is well known that rock porosity reduces rock Young’s modulus of intact rock specimens. However, it is not well understood how different types and amount of macroporosity in forms of non-connected or isolated cavities (e.g., vesicular basalt, lithophysal tuff) or interconnected...

... ABSTRACT: The presence of vesicles within basalt has a negative impact on both the unconfined compressive strength (UCS) and deformation modulus (axial stiffness) of basalt specimens. Vesicular basalt specimens (diameters of 44.45 mm) were cored from surface boulders obtained from southern...

... of the volcanic rock . Total porosity of the basalt affects the strength of the rock. Kelsall and others conducted research on the engineering characterization of fissured and weathered dolerite and vesicular basalts . They observed that strength of vesicular lavas was affected considerably by porosity...
