Relationship between physical parameters of rock and number of weathering cycles

Weathering typeRelationship between number of weathering cycles (T) and velocity (V) and compressive strength (R)
T and VT and R
Freeze–thaw action−0.985−0.975
Dry–wet action−0.807−0.950
Alternating freeze–thaw and dry–wet action−0.935−0.969
