The article describes a computer analysis of the pull-out test used to calculate the force needed to pull out a rock fragment and determine the shape of this broken fragment. The analyzed material is sandstone and porphyry. The analysis included the first approach to using own subroutine in the Simulia Abaqus system, that is, which task is undertaken to accurately determine the crack path of the Finite Element Method model. The work also contains a description of laboratory tests and analytical considerations.

In soil and rockmechanics, the Mohr-Coulomb (MC) shear strength criterion, along with its parameters, namely friction angle and cohesion, is treated as a kind of standard and reference concept for other shear strength criteria. This is due to the fact, that it fits well the experimental data, where asymmetric strength response in triaxial compression (TXC) and triaxial extension (TXE) tests is observed. Moreover, the MC criterion parameters have clear engineering interpretation and they are typically obtained in most geotechnical

measured by strain gauges, which measures the deformation between 1/4 and 3/4 of the sample’s height.
Fifty uniaxial compressive tests were performed in the rockmechanics laboratory at RockStudy Ltd. The NX ( d = 50 mm)-sized cylindrical rock samples having the ratio of L / d = 2/1 (here L and d are the length and diameter of a sample, respectively) were prepared (see
Fig. 4 ). Mechanical properties of granitic rock samples are summarised in Table 1 .

Static load tests on foundation piles are generally carried out in order to determine load – the displacement characteristic of the pile head. For standard (basic) engineering practices this type of test usually provides enough information. However, the knowledge of force distribution along the pile core and its division into the friction along the shaft and the resistance under the base can be very useful. Such information can be obtained by strain gage pile instrumentation . Significant investigations have been completed on this technology, proving its utility and correctness , , . The results of static tests on instrumented piles are not easy to interpret. There are many factors and processes affecting the final outcome. In order to understand better the whole testing process and soil-structure behavior some investigations and numerical analyses were done. In the paper, real data from a field load test on instrumented piles is discussed and compared with numerical simulation of such a test in similar conditions. Differences and difficulties in the results interpretation with their possible reasons are discussed. Moreover, the authors used their own analytical solution for more reliable determination of force distribution along the pile. The work was presented at the XVII French-Polish Colloquium of Soil and Rock Mechanics, Łódź, 28–30 November 2016.
