This chapter deals with the experimental techniques commonly employed to characterize the dynamic behavior of rockmaterials. The dynamic testing machines are illustrated, focusing on the strain rate level achievable and the loading scheme. The main dynamic properties of common rock materials are discussed, with reference to the corresponding dynamic increase factors, which affect compression and tensile behavior.
