Summary of Physical Properties Measured at Several Boreholes Penetrating through the Chelungpu Fault in Central Taiwan



On 20 September 1999, the Ms 7.6 Chi-Chi earthquake ruptured the Chelungpu fault in central Taiwan. After the earthquake,several boreholes of different depths were drilled. Those boreholes penetrated the fault plane. The physical (mechanical,thermal, hydraulic, electric, and magnetic) parameters were measured either on the core samples or through well-loggings. Results are significant for studies of the Chelungpu fault. However, the measured results are published in different articles and reports. It is not convenient for the earth scientists to take advantage of those results. Hence, those results are compiled and described in this paper. In addition, the correlations among a few parameters are also reported.
