A Study on the Soundness of Parent Rocks in Sri Lanka (TCEIA) - Lupine Publishers

A Study on the Soundness of Parent Rocks in Sri Lanka (TCEIA) - Lupine Publishers

Studies on the engineering properties of different rock types provide a prior knowledge on the quality of such rock types as well as potential locations of suitable sources for the industry. The property "soundness" of a material measures the tendency to split into pieces similar to physical weathering during expansion and contraction processes within it. This soundness varies according to the type of minerals in a rock and its' origin. If rocks are using for aggregates for concrete or other applications the estimation of their soundness is necessary. With the aim of that, fresh rock samples of different rock types were collected from quarries and exposed rocks in different locali-ties in Sri Lanka to study the variation of soundness property in different rock aggregates. Samples were tested in the geotechnical engineering laboratory using sodium sulfate solution according to the Standard Method ASTM C88-99a. The rock types were Chranockite/charnockitic gneiss, garnet/hornblende/biotite gneiss, Microcline/Granitic gneiss, Garnet/biotite gneiss, Marble, Hornblende biotite gneiss, Quartzite, pegmatite, pink granite and Miocene limestone. Accordingly charnockite/ charnockitic gneiss shows the lowest loss of weight percentage as the highly sound rock for aggregates. Miocene limestone is the highly unfavorable rock.

  1. I want to testify of how I got cured from HERPES VIRUS. I have been living with this VIRUS for years, I have done all I can to cure this virus but all my efforts proved abortive until I met a old friend of mine who told me about DR Larry the great herbal Doctor who prepare herbal cure to heal all kind of diseases, though I never believed in herbal cures, I decided to give it a try when I contacted this great DR Larry, he helped me prepare the cure and send it to me which I make use of for just 3weeks and now behold the herpes is gone and I now have my life back, if you are out there living with this Virus or any kind of sickness just contact this great Herbal Doctor on his email assurancesolutionhome@gmail.com website http://assurancesolutionhome.wordpress.com http://assurancesolutionhome.website2.me/ WhatsApp +1(424)-261-8520
