It is known that rock-water interaction has important effects on the physicomechanical properties of rocks. In this study, 20 rock with different origins were used. The water absorption properties of rocks were determined by immersion and capillarity-effected water absorption experiments. The rocks are classified according to the water absorption properties of the capillary effect. The relationships between water absorption properties and porosity properties of rocks were evaluated by regression analysis. The results obtained are given in the form of regression equations.
