Coupled thermal–hygric characterisation of elastic behaviour for soft and porous limestone

What is it about?

The objective of this paper is to experimentally examine the effect of variations in both temperature and water saturation on the mechanical and dilation properties of a soft limestone

Why is it important?

The relationship between variations in elastic behaviour (i.e. strain, elastic modulus and Poisson’s ratio), temperature and water saturation was experimentally explored and successfully represented by equations using the design of experiments (DOE) method on two complementary experimental plans.

doing such a paper and published in high score international journal consider very interesting and the work might be extended to cover other features of this type of limestone.
