Abstract
The ophiolite sequences of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a northern part of Semail Oman ophiolite. The ophiolite sequences consists of layered series, which is divided into tectonized Peridotite that is older and the massive Peridotite that is younger is an ultramafic igneous rock. Estimating strength properties of a rock through in-situ and laboratory measurement are crucial tasks for geological, civil and mining engineering applications such as design of structures inside rock, usage of rocks as a construction material, slope instability and others. Rock strength measurement in either in-situ or laboratory environment is costly, time consuming and requires considerable efforts for rock sampling, preparation and laboratory tests. There are different suggested testing methods available and used to interpret rock strength properties. In this study, approximately fifty peridotite rock block samples, at least 0.30 x 0.30 x 0.30 m in size, were collected from the field. The unconfined compressive strength (UCS), Brazilian strength (BRS), point load strength index (PLSI) and Schmidt hammer hardness tests were carried out either on the selected rock block samples or core samples based on the suggested standards. The aim of this study is to estimate and report the strength properties of the Peridotite rocks from Masfout - Hatta area, UAE, through in-situ and laboratory studies and discuss their probable influences as design of structures inside rock, usage of rocks as a construction material, slope instability and others.
