The creep deformation behavior of rocks has significant effect on the stability of underground structures. This study presents the short-term and creep deformation behavior of medium-strength marble rock using a conventional uniaxial compression testing machine and a servo-controlled rheology testing machine. The uniaxial compressive strength is obtained by the uniaxial compression testing machine. During the creep behavior test, two types of rock specimens (dry and water-saturated) are specified to be used to perform the uniaxial creep tests. Two rheological failure modes and the relationship curves between axial/circumferential strain and stress levels of marble specimens are also obtained from the creep test results. Eventually, the creep deformation behaviors are compared with those of typical soft rocks. These creep curves combined with a given creep constitutive model would provide accurate parameters for long-term stability analyses of actual projects.
