Transit Development in Rock Mechanics—Recognition, Thinking and Innovation contains 150 papers presented at the 3rd ISRM International Young Scholars’ Symposium on Rock Mechanics (8-10 November 2014, Xi’an, China). The volume focusses on the transitional development in rock mechanics research from surface to underground mining and from shallow to a deep rock excavations, and on the transition of knowledge, thinking and innovation from pioneers to the young generation. The contributions cover a wide range of topics:

  1. Field investigation and measurements
  2. Physical and mechanical properties of rocks
  3. Analysis and design methods for rock engineering
  4. Numerical and physical modeling
  5. Multi-fields coupling analysis methods
  6. Rock slope, tunnel and foundation engineering
  7. Monitoring and control of rock pressure in underground engineering
  8. Dynamic rock mechanics and blasting
  9. Support and reinforcement techniques for geotechnical engineering
  10. Prediction and control of artificial hazards with excavation in rock

Transit Development in Rock MechanicsRecognition, Thinking and Innovation will be invaluable to engineers and academics interested or involved in rock mechanics, geotechnical engieering, mine engineering and underground engineering.

The Symposium was organized by the Commission on Education of International Society for Rock Mechanics and Xi’an University of Science and Technology, and sponsored by the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) and the Chinese Society for Rock Mechanics and Engineering (CSRME).
