For Gassmann's method which is considered for this research, one of the four variables needed to calculate the rock bulk modulus is the dry frame bulk modulus d K , which can be determined for each core sample
during the experiment.
The brains at NASA knew they wanted a drilling device to gather core samples
for a future Asteroid lander mission or a flight to Mars but they didn't know the nuts and bolts of how to do it.
The core sample
, a solid tube of wood, is then stored in a straw (or if the sample is a long one, in two straws taped together), and taken back to a lab to be dried, mounted, sanded, and then examined under a microscope.
Electron photomicrographs of the fracture surface of core samples
reveal that the binder attachments between sand grains appear very similar to those of other binders (Fig.
A study of elastic anisotropy and other physical and mechanical properties of rocks was carried out on the borehole SD-3 core samples
which were drilled out and lifted from depth.
X-rays, which are fuzzier, come in only two dimensions and require that the core sample
be cut into pieces, Briskin says.
The facility stores drill core samples
that can be studied by researchers and explorers seeking new petroleum and mineral discoveries.
Crews will be taking more than three dozen core samples
of the roadway from 6:45 p.
