This book is Volume 1 of the EUROCK 2018 proceedings.

Geomechanics and Geodynamics of Rock Masses contains contributions presented at EUROCK 2018, the 2018 International Symposium of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM 2018, Saint Petersburg, Russia, 22-26 May 2018). Dedicated to recent advances and achievements in the fields of geomechanics and geotechnology, the main topics of the book include:

- Physical and mechanical properties of fractured rock (laboratory testing and rock properties, field measurements and site investigations)
- Geophysics in rock mechanics
- Rock mass strength and failure
- Nonlinear problems in rock mechanics
- Effect of joint water on the behavior of rock foundation
- Numerical modeling and back analysis
- Mineral resources development: methods and rock mechanics problems
- Rock mechanics and underground construction in mining, hydropower industry and civil engineering
- Rock mechanics in petroleum engineering
- Geodynamics and monitoring of rock mass behavior
- Risks and hazards
- Geomechanics of technogenic deposits

Geomechanics and Geodynamics of Rock Masses will be of interest to researchers and professionals involved in the various branches of rock mechanics and rock engineering. EUROCK 2018, organized by the Saint Petersburg Mining University, is a continuation of the successful series of ISRM symposia in Europe, which began in 1992 in Chester, UK.
