This study aims to determine the effect of clay shale drying on compressive strength and durability reduction by using samples taken from Kandangan Village, Polisiri Village, Bawen Sub District, Semarang Regency and Central Java. The drying process simulates when the open cut excavation process is

The method used is testing the physical property, property of rocks and mechanical property with drying at intervals of 0 minute, 30minutes, 60minutes, and 90minutes. Initial condition of sample had 23 percent -31 percent of vulnerable water content. The influence of drying can reduce the value of water content; clay shale is really easy in creating the weathering; and all samples of shale clay have very low durability properties. Of all the UCS test samples, it can be said that the longer the drying, the greater the percentage of qu value loss. For testing Modulus Elasticity can be said that the longer the drying, the greater the percentage of loss of E50 value and Etan value. The relationship between UCS and Modulus Elasticity (E50 and Etan) values with the duration of the drying is the longer the drying the greater the lost value of UCS and Modulus Elasticity. Keywords Clay Shale, UCS, Slake Durability, Modulus of Elasticity (E50 and Etan)
