Determination of the mechanical parameters of rocks and soil are very useful for building and other civil engineering purposes, but the mechanical properties of sedimentary rocks have wide range of values and are much influenced by lithological factors. These parameters are usually measured in the laboratory from some collected samples. These samples not reflect the mechanical behavior of the whole rocks. In this work a comparative study for measuring the mechanical properties of some Eocene Limestone rocks along four selected sites by using the shallow refraction seismic method and the laboratory method had been carried out for judging which one is suitable for this purpose.
