Laboratory direct shear test is conducted on cylinder specimens of dry and saturated granites by making use of INSTRON_1346 rock servo testing machine. The specimens are provided by the planned nuclear power plant in Fuqing city of Fujian Province. Through linear regression analysis of the test results, it is indicated that there exist linear relationship between cohesion c, internal friction angle φ of dry granites and the corresponding strength parameters of saturated granites. Thus, this conduces to studying the relationship between shear strength and water content of rock mass and it may also be available for giving some valuable references in engineering designs.
