Abstract

This paper provides test results and interpretation of the changes of mechanical properties of granitic rocks by heat effect. The samples were obtained from the quarry of Mauthausen (Upper Austria), from where the produced granite was used construction of bridges, buildings and cobbled streets in several country. The behavior of Austrian granite shows no similarity to other foreign granite by 300°C heat load. The studied granite's mechanical properties do not change or even slightly decrease, while other tests have observed an increase in the initial stage temperature (Dwivedi et al. 2008). The Young's modulus, the compressive strength and the indirect tensile strength strong reduction is observed by further increase of the temperature.
