The paper deals with disc test method for determining the tensile strength of rocks. The aim has been to study the effect of the size of the specimen on the strength of rocks and the effect of anisotropy on the tensile strength. It has been found that the tensile strength decreases with the increase in the thickness of the disc. There is a marked effect of orientation of bedding planes on the calculated strength of a disc. Tensile strength has been found to be highest when the applied load acts at 80° to the bedding planes. The least value was observed when the applied load was acting along the direction of the bedding planes.
