Paper Number: ARMA-2021-1628
... activity during the test. The scratch probe tip is a Rockwell conical diamond indenter with a 200 μm diameter spherical tip. The materials are loaded progressively using the micro-scratch tester. Fused quartz and borosilicate glass are used to study brittle behavior from scratch test. The glass materials...

Paper presented at the 55th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 18–25, 2021
Paper Number: ARMA-2021-2139
... ABSTRACT: The Scratch Test is a quasi-non-destructive method made up of pushing a tool across the surface of a weaker rock at a given penetration depth. The Uniaxial Compression Test is a destructive method of measuring the maximum axial compressive stress a rock can withstand before failing...

... in a depleted heterogeneous reservoir, using subsurface samples from Wolfcamp shale formation and a microbial strain. We first obtained the mechanical properties of shale samples using the scratch test method, in addition to the measurement of their initial porosity and permeability. We treated the shale core...

Paper Number: ARMA-2021-1780
... ABSTRACT: Experimental observations from the rock scratch test in sedimentary rocks present compelling evidence that the uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) can be estimated from the specific energy (SE). However, large variations of the SE/UCS ratio are also observed in various types of rocks...

Paper presented at the 52nd U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 17–20, 2018
Paper Number: ARMA-2018-160
... ABSTRACT: This paper presents an objective review of two non-destructive methods developed for the rapid and cost-effective testing of compressive strength on rock cores. Rebound impact test and scratch test methods are compared. Respective advantages and drawbacks are listed in terms...

... is an expensive and time consuming process. It would be ideal if the strength of the intact rock could be estimated in the field as an in-situ measurement by running a device inside a borehole. Estimation of the rock strength by scratch tests has been reasonably accurate. Application of this concept...
