“The mechanical properties of various components of the Chelyabinsk meteorite are studied. A measurement technique allowing one to obtain a strength certificate of the material by a minimum necessary number of samples with allowance for defectiveness is developed. Universal expressions for the chondritic component and impact melting have been obtained. The expressions allow one to make general estimates of the strength boundaries for LL type meteorites.”
