Abstract Using a servo-controlled testing machine stress-strain curves were obtained from which the uni-axial compressive strength Youngs modulus and the brittleness index were measured for specimens prepared from a single block of Sandstone from Hadjar Soud quarry Algeria. To see how the strength properties were affected by changes in absorption content such as are likely to occur on site the specimens were divided into three groups which were prepared for testing under different conditions of absorption equilibrium.
