The aim of tlris work is to investigate the mechanical properties of the muscles from the estimation of the YM values for each bovine muscle under uniaxial load at a consistent strain rate.
The degree of compactness was intended only for soil layers annually disturbed by tillage, and it has only been tested for this purpose (Hakansson 1990) by using either the Proctor test or the uniaxial compression test.
Rock materials' uniaxial compressive strength greatly depends on their index properties such as porosity, water content, water absorption and mineral composition P wave velocity and porosity are the most preferred properties for predicting UCS amongst such properties (Sachpazis 1990; Tugrul and Zarif 1999; Palchik 1999).
