modulus of deformation, constrained modulus) can easily double when the density increases from 85 to 95 percent compaction (Gemperline and Gemperline 2011).
According to the results of UCS tests and triaxial compression tests, mechanical parameters of uniaxial compressive strength values, modulus of deformation, cohesion, and internal friction angle are all in the range of that of natural soft rock.

The basic physical properties--particle density, bulk density and porosity, and the mechanical and deformational properties--simple compressive strength, modulus of deformation, Young's modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio for chosen rocks from the borehole were previously determined and their changes with depth of occurrence in the borehole were studied (Trckova et al.
Particle density, bulk density, porosity, simple compressive strength, modulus of deformation, Young's modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio were determined in the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
