The dataset contains the major physical properties and the mechanical parameters of several intact rock samples of limestone collected from the Central Apennine region (Italy). The physical properties obtained for the rock samples are unit weight, density and porosity. The derived mechanical parameters include uniaxial compressive strength, cohesion, friction angle, tensile strength, elastic modulus, and Poisson ratio. When available, also the index parameters (point load index) and the dynamic characteristics (elastic wave velocities) are provided. The laboratory tests for these samples were conducted in accordance with the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) standards.
