Study of "Saralsk" Deposit for Practical Applications in Construction
Keywords:structure, texture, density, strength, water resistance, frost resistance
In article the results of research of structural features and technical properties of andesite - basalt stone rock of the “Saralsk” deposit are given. The material is estimated by its mineral - petrographic composition, and the cuts/refinements of stone materials have been made for the microscopic study of mineral-petrographic composition. Researches are conducted according to requirements of acting standards and as a result, it became clear, that the rock consists basically of minerals opacitized hornblende and plagioclase, it doesn't contain any no secondary minerals such as hydroxides of iron, chlorites, epidote, quartz, saricite, etc. Petrographic researches have allowed to determine the species of stone rock. The density, strength, water resistance and frost resistance of stone rock are studied. The suitability of the material for practical application in construction, including for external works, is revealed.
