The geotechnical properties of Ferrar dolerites
Entry ID: K025_1987_1988_NZ_1

Abstract: A study of the strength of dolerites in the Dry Valleys region of Antarctica was undertaken in order to define the range of geomechanical properties expressed by these rocks and to examine the relationship between the petrology and strength of the materials. The patterns of jointing were also examined in order to develop an understanding of the development and pattern of joints in relationship to ... View entire text
