The deformation mechanics of rubble masonry concrete (RMC) are explored experimentally and theoretically with reference to the behaviours of analogous concrete and natural conglomerate. The composite stiffness of large RMC cubic specimens, containing rock types exhibiting diametrically extreme values of stiffness, was determined dynamically and measured statically to gain a preliminary indication of the range of values likely to be encountered. A broad spectrum of moduli of deformation and Poisson's ratios were recorded.
