Rock mass strength is defined by three parameters including unconfined compressive strength of intact basalt and two others related to the degree of fracturing of the material. Experimental results for elevated temperature extend the applicability of these parameters to the near surface environment of Venus.

Basalt Rock Properties and Uses - Science Struck. The rock hardness of basalt is 6 on the Mohs scale and can be seen through a combination of its compressive strength: 100-300 Mpa Megapascal its tensile strength: 10-30 Mpa and its shear strength: 20-60 Mpa which denotes that depending on the mineral makeup basalt rocks fall in the strong – very strong egory.
The hardness of Basalt is 6 whereas its compressive strength is 37.40 N/mm 2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Basalt is white to grey whereas its fracture is conchoidal. Luster of Basalt is the interaction of light with the surface of Basalt. Luster of Basalt is not available.

According to the test results the compressive strength of RA1C RA2C and RA12C were reduced by 17.5% 21.7% and 34.8% compared to NAC respectively. The inclusion of 20–40–60% RA in concrete decreases the compressive strength of RACs and the highest decrease in the compressive strength was found for RA12C as 34.8%.
Typical values of strength parameters for intact basalt at ambient temperature 20 C and negligible confining pressure are Young& 39;s modulus 78±19 GPa; Poisson& 39;s ratio 0.25±0.05; tensile strength −14.5±3.3 MPa; unconfined compressive strength 266±98 MPa; and conhesion 66 MPa.

On the other hand compressive strength decreased with the increased use of the basalt fibers. For example when the fibers increased by 0.5% at 28 days compressive strength of the specimens containing fly ash silica fume and no pozzolan were maximum 12 7 and 13% respectively. The latter value was 6% for the pozzolanic composite mixtures.
