Quantifying the relationship between stress-strain and fracture is important to the perfection of fracture capability if it is to be used as a tool for guiding failure operations in geological materials drilling. The development of fracture prediction tools is critical for geological applications in oil and gas industry as the prospects for building understanding empirically will be limited due to the high costs associated with extreme condition field trials (e.g. North Sea). There are numerous data associated with porous geological material fracture investigations, but the value of this information is limited by an inability to accurately measure stress-strain within the sample. This work aims to use neutron techniques that can be interrogate the internal volume of porous crystalline geological specimens subjected to stress states at high temperature resembling geological conditions.
