The roundness is interpreted as the degree to which the cross-section of the workpiece is close to the theoretical circle. In the eyes of unfamiliar people, the concept of roundness is a bit abstract.

Estimating Strength of Sandstone Using Petrographic Thin ...

This investigation shows that the compressive strength of calcareous sandstones can be estimated from critical petrographic properties observed in thin sections. For the sandstones from the Beehive Coal Mine, the significant petrographic properties are mean and median grain sizes, percent quartz grains, total percent quartz, sphericity, and ...

From Fig. 3b, sphericity distribution of CDG, CS and PM are very close, while that of LBS is far right from those three materials, because the surface of LBS is very smooth as shown in Fig. 1. Thus, LBS is a regular shape grains, while ...

2021-2-7  Fahy and Guccione demonstrated the dependence of compressive rock strength on grain sizes, quartz percentage, sphericity, cements and grain contacts. Dyke and Dobereiner ( 1991 ) showed that the length of the grain contacts in relation to the total grain surface length can be used as a proxy for compressive strength in sandstones.

2020-10-1  The particle shape also has significant influence on the development of excess pore pressure. Under 200 kPa, these three calcareous sands show higher liquefaction resistances than two other samples, and the number of cycles to reach liquefaction for CC (0.5–1), CM (0.5–1), CL (0.5–1) are 120, 141 and 158, respectively.

A New Roundness Scale for Sedimentary Particles

ABSTRACT A new roundness scale is proposed. This scale is defined by six roundness classes. Two sets of clay models were prepared to characterize each roundness class. One set shows a high sphericity, the other a low sphericity. Photographs of these models are used to determine the roundness of a particle by comparison.

Quartz is the most important sand-forming mineral and occurs in very many sand types but usually not exclusively. In this sand type (which is aptly named quartz sand), quartz is almost the sole component of sand.Similar sandstones are called quartz arenites or orthoquartzites.. Quartz is in high demand due to its abundance and unique properties.
