a) Rock Hardness. Rock hardness is a term used in geology to denote the cohesiveness of a rock and is usually expressed as its compressive fracture strength. Terms such as hardrock and softrock are used by geologists to distinguishing between igneous/metamorphic and sedimentary rocks respectively.

The rock hardness of basalt is 6 on the Mohs scale and can be seen through a combination of its compressive strength 100300 Mpa (Megapascal) its tensile strength 1030 Mpa and its shear strength 2060 Mpa which denotes that depending on the mineral makeup basalt rocks fall in the strong very strong egory.

Fracture strength is the value corresponding to the stress at which total failure occurs. Stiffness is how a component resists elastic deformation when a load is applied. Hardness is resistance to localized surface deformation. The strength of a material can refer to yield strength ultimate strength or fracture strength.

· The results show that standardised indentation testing allows for characterisation of mechanical properties of rock and that there is a relationship between the value of the indentation hardens index and the uniaxial compressive strength. The value of the calculated index was used to classify the hardness of rock.

· The Mohs Hardness Scale developed by Friedrich helps you decide the strength and hardness of any material or mineral. The more you move up the scale (1-10) the minerals become harder and harder. On the other hand the below you go the mineral becomes softer and softer ending with the softest mineral.

· between strain hardening and softening is called the unconfined compressive strength of the rock and is denoted as Co or qu. Failure takes place continuously from C to D during which macrocracking takes place as the rock becomes more deteriorated and crack coalescence takes place.

· different rock formations of the Salt Range area of Pakistan were tested to evaluate the correlations between the uniaxial compressive strength and the corresponding values of the point load index. Two hundred rock cores were drilled and used for the uniaxial compressive strength and point load index tests.

Each sample was inspected

Hardness is one of the physical properties of rocks and the shore hardness is a convenient and inexpensive method widely used for estimating rock hardness. SH can be used to estimate the uniaxial compressive strength of weak rocks and is helpful because determination of the UCS of weak rocks is time consuming and expensive.

There is no absolute relationship between the hardness and the compressive strength of concrete due to the reasons mentioned by H. Süleyman Gökçe.

Schmidt rebound hammer (SRH) test has been used worldwide as an index test for estimating the compressive strength and deformation characteristics of intact rocks. Although there is a high correlation between the surface hardness and the uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) of intact rocks the SRH provides only a crude estimate for the UCS of rocks. SRH numbers reflect the outer surface of

· The strongest rock in the world is diabase followed closely by other fine-grained igneous rocks and quartzite. Diabase is strongest in compression tension and shear stress. If mineral hardness is the determining factor of strength then diamond is technically the strongest rock in the world. Rock strength is not always an easy thing to measure.

· Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS) of the rocks plays a significant role in geotechnical and rock engineering projects. Due to difficulties UCS estimation is done using indirect methods such as Schmidt Rebound Hammer (RN) and ltrasonic Pulse VUelocity (UPV) tests that are quick and inexpensive tests.
