    The need for a multi-purpose rock tester that incorporates a microcomputer for logging and evaluation purposes is identified. A number of semistandard test methods adaptable to such a tester are examined and found suitable from the point of view of simplicity, cheapness, and accuracy of determination. Some design aspects of this tester in its present state of development are considered.
