a Ratios of water-saturated-to-dry uniaxial compressive strength, brine-saturated-to-dry uniaxial compressive strength, and water-saturated-to-brine-saturated uniaxial compressive strength for the six sandstones sampled from exploration well EPS-1 at Soultz-sous-Forêts (France) as a function of connected porosity. b Ratios of water-saturated-to-dry uniaxial compressive strength, brine-saturated-to-dry uniaxial compressive strength, and water-saturated-to-brine-saturated uniaxial compressive strength for the six sandstones sampled from exploration well EPS-1 at Soultz-sous-Forêts as a function of clay content (clay content is the wt% of muscovite/illite–smectite; Table 1)
