1.1 This test method covers the preparation, equipment, test procedure, and data documentation for determining in situ creep characteristics of a rock mass using a rigid plate subjected to controlled loading.
1.2 This test method is designed to be conducted in an underground opening; however, with suitable modifications, this test could be conducted at the surface.
1.3 The test is usually conducted parallel or perpendicular to the anticipated axis of thrust, as dictated by the design load or other orientations, based upon the application.
1.4 Flexible plate apparatus can be used if the anticipated creep displacement is within the tolerance of the travel of the flat jacks.
1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precaution statements, see Section 8.
