The Goodman Jack is used for in-situ investigations of the deformability of rock masses. It is designed to be used in 3" (76 mm) boreholes.
Two models are available: a twelvepiston model for use in hard rock, and a three-piston model for determining the consolidation-time properties of soft rock, soil, and stiff clays.
The Goodman Jack is coupled to the drill rod and inserted into the borehole, along with its hydraulic lines and signal cable. When the jack is in position, a hand pump is used to activate the pistons within the jack. The pistons push a curved bearing plate against the borehole wall, producing a uniform, uni-directional stress field.
The applied pressure is measured with a pressure gauge, and the deformation of the rock is measured by two linear variable differential transformers (LVDT). The indicator displays the LVDT readings. After the test, the bearing plates are retracted and the jack is withdrawn from the borehole.
The modulus of deformation is calculated using formulae derived empirically from in-situ testing. Then correction factors are applied, using factors that were developed by laboratory testing.
