Abstract: Four NX-diameter holes were diamond-drilled in competent granite. Samples of the recovered core were used in laboratory tests. A borehole, plate-bearing derive known as a Goodman jack was used to perform load-deformation tests on the rock in the core hole. The samples used in the laboratory tests were taken from depths in the hole at or within 5 ft of those at which the jacking tests were made. Borehole camera records, compressional and shear wave velocities, and densities were measured. Dynamic elastic constants were computed for the in-situ material, while comparative data (except camera records) were obtained in the laboratory. These data were examined to evaluate the significance of the in-situ modulus of deformation (Ed) the value computed from Goodman-jack tests. Average test results show an excellent correlation between in-situ and laboratory data. The ratio of laboratory to field deformation modulus ranges from 9.82 to 7.21 for 3000- and 9000-psi stress levels, respectively.
