Uniaxial compressive strength as a function of connected porosity for the studied Muschelkalk samples from exploration well EPS-1 (Soultz-sous-Forêts) and for published data for limestones from Zhu et al. (2010) and Baud et al. (2016). Three modelled curves are provided using the analytical solution of the Sammis and Ashby (1986) pore-emanating crack model provided by Zhu et al. (2010) (Eq. (1); see text for details)
