Geotechnical Materials for Floor Covering: Dioritic Noritic “Granite” Plates Structural Behavior

Sérgio T. F. Moreiras, Antenor B. Paraguassú, and Rogério P. Ribeiro
Abstract—Polished finishing granites have great acceptance in non-adherent covering systems because of the slabs’ shape design, color variety and the high level of mechanical properties and durability. The Brazilian practice for natural stone design applies only the bending tensile strength test results and other important characteristics are not taken in account. Thus, this study evaluated the mechanical properties of the stone for non-adherent paving uses as structural slab and pedestal paving system. The properties assessed for the dioritic noritic Black São Gabriel were the stress versus deformation diagram, the Young modulus (E) and the Poisson’s ratio (μ). The tests were running in compression and in bending modes. The results showed a good correlation between the five Young modulus (E) obtained.

Index Terms—Granite’ slab, structural behavior, non adherent covering system, Young’s modulus (E).
