The activity will enable the students to appreciate independent learning and prepare them for a much harder task of open ended laboratory activities. In this partially open laboratory activity the students are required to carry out the tests to determine the durability of rocks.ObjectivesTo determine the resistance offered by a rock sample to weakening and disintegration when subjected to drying and wetting cycles. Learning OutcomesAt the end of the laboratory activities, students would be able to :1. Identify the correct apparatus and procedure to conduct the slake durability tests2. Analyse test data and present the results in proper technical format 3. Perform effectively as a team in carrying out the task and produce the relevant technical reportTheoretical BackgroundThe slake durability test, proposed by Franklin and Chandra (1972), is a standardized measurement of the weight loss of rock lumps when repeatedly rotated through an air water interface. The procedure has been sta
