With the precipitation of pyrolysis products, oil shale gradually becomes porous, which causes its physical and mechanical parameters (such as the elastic modulus) to change.
(2) As the temperatures increases, the ultimate stress and strain decline nonlinearly, and the elastic modulus of the material decreases obviously.
Parameters such as elastic modulus and Poisson's ratio of coal and proppant are provided by Daqing oilfield, and the experimental parameters are shown in Table 1.
Due to the relatively big ultimate strain of BFRP reinforcements, the force level of BFPR reinforcements in SCB would be smaller than that of CFPR reinforcements in SCC when similar strains were applied to these FRP reinforcements, as illustrated in (7), in which [F.sub.f] refers to the force level of the FPR reinforcement, [E.sub.f] refers to the elastic modulus of the FRP reinforcement, and [A.sub.f] and [A.sub.eqf] refer to the actual and equivalent cross-section area of the FPR reinforcement.
The elastic modulus of PDMS was determined independently via nanoindentation (Nano Indenter G200 with a DCM II Head, KLATencor, Milpitas, CA, USA) utilizing a 100 [micro]m flat punch (Synton-MDP Ltd, Nidau, Switzerland) before the calibration.
As shown in Figure 9, the height ratio has a key effect on the value of the elastic modulus. The elastic modulus values of RCR samples are between the values of pure sandstone (7.10 GPa) and pure coal (3.11 GPa) samples.
