5.2 Method C, uniaxial compressive strength of rock is used in many design formulas and is sometimes used as an index property to select the appropriate excavation technique. Deformation and strength of rock are known to be functions of confining pressure. Method A, triaxial compression test, is commonly used to simulate the stress conditions under which most underground rock masses exist.

Answer (1 of 2): Imagine that rocks are made up of Lego blocks. Stack the blocks up and try to squeeze them together, they won’t squish. But it’s easy to pull them apart. That’s a simplification, rock particles can’t be compressed and won’t slip past each other, but they aren’t held to each other...
