1st Edition

Yanrong Li
December 10, 2019

Determination of the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of ground materials is the key to successfully deliver such projects as slope stabilization, excavation and lateral support, foundation etc. A book containing both theory of geomaterial testing and up-to-date testing methods is much...

Rock Mass Stability Around Underground Excavations in a Mine: A Case Study

1st Edition

Yan Xing, Pinnaduwa H.S.W. Kulatilake, Louis Sandbak
December 04, 2019

Stability of underground excavations is of great importance to an operating mine because it ensures the safety of the working people and operating equipment, and successful ore production. Due to the complex geological conditions and mine constructions, and variability and uncertainty in estimating...

Rock Mechanics Through Project-Based Learning

1st Edition

Ivan Gratchev
November 05, 2019

Traditional textbooks on rock mechanics often fail to engage students in the learning process as such books are packed with theory that students are unlikely to use in their future employment. In contrast, this book delivers the fundamentals of rock mechanics using a more practical and engaging...

Ground Characterization and Structural Analyses for Tunnel Design

1st Edition

Benjamín Celada, Z.T. Bieniawski
August 26, 2019

This practical and design-oriented book focuses on ground characterization and structural calculation, as part of the active structural design methodology. With a focus on rock tunnelling it offers a comprehensive rather than a topic-based perspective, deriving sound tunnel design criteria and...

Fractured Rock Hydraulics

1st Edition

Fernando Olavo Franciss
August 23, 2018

Uniquely devoted to hard and fractured rock hydraulics, this advanced-level introduction provides tools to solve practical engineering problems. Chapter I covers the fundamentals of fractured rock hydraulics under a tensor approach. Chapter II presents some key concepts about approximate solutions....

Advances in Rock Dynamics and Applications

1st Edition

Yingxin Zhou, Jian Zhao
August 14, 2018

The study of rock dynamics is important because many rock mechanics and rock engineering problems involve dynamic loading ranging from earthquakes to vibrations and explosions. The subject deals with the distribution and propagation of loads, dynamic responses, and processes of rocks and...
