The mechanical characteristics of rock salt have an important influence on the safety of the salt cavity. The acoustic emission (AE) technique was used to analyze the generation of microcracks in rock salt under uniaxial compression condition. By monitoring acoustic emission in whole process of stress - strain curve under uniaxial compression test, the damage characteristic of rock salt is obtained. The AE rate-strain curve is able to reflect the damage development process with better consistency evident with the cracks generating. The failure form of rock salt is mainly the shear failure under condition of low loading strain rate. After shear failure, a lot of small crushed particles spread on the surface of the failure surface. A damage constitutive model of rock salt is determined on the basis of acoustic emission characteristics, which could reflect the strength and deformation characteristics before the peak strength.
