Drilling and Sampling of Soil and Rock - PDHonline.com
used on any rock coring job, but typically, it is used on projects where bore holes are greater than 25 m deep and rapid removal of the core from the hole has a greater effect on cost. Wireline drilling is also an effective method for both rock and soil exploration though cobbles or boulders, which tend to shift and block off the bore hole.اقرأ أكثر

Behaviour of soil and rock - SpringerLink
The transition between soil and rock is not sharp, and there are many kinds of rock, which may be considered either as soft rock or as soil. If one refrains from the separation by arrays of joints, the strength of rock is usually modelled in the same way as the strength of soil.اقرأ أكثر
