Engineering Disturbed Rock Mass Structural Mechanics Stress Disturbance and Freeze Thaw on Rock Structure Deterioration Book Excerpt:

This book is intended as a reference book for advanced graduate students and research engineers in rock mechanics related to mining, civil engineering, etc. Environmental and human-induced loading acting on manmade works is disturbed in essence. During construction and operation of major engineering projects, e.g., civil engineering, mining engineering, hydraulic engineering, bridge engineering and petroleum engineering, the structures built in or on rock mass not only bear the complex in situ conditions, e.g., stress, seepage, faulting, thermal and chemical coupling, but also often encounter a variety of stress disturbances during engineering construction and operation periods, the stress disturbance acted on rock mass structures can be low-medium strain rate, and also high strain rate. Along with the constructions on rock mass, a lot of disasters, e.g., tunnel rockburst, induced seismicity and sand liquefaction, are cyclic and dynamic processes.

Rock Mechanics Book Excerpt:

This new edition has been completely revised to reflect the notable innovations in mining engineering and the remarkable developments in the science of rock mechanics and the practice of rock angineering taht have taken place over the last two decades. Although "Rock Mechanics for Underground Mining" addresses many of the rock mechanics issues that arise in underground mining engineering, it is not a text exclusively for mining applications. Based on extensive professional research and teaching experience, this book will provide an authoratative and comprehensive text for final year undergraduates and commencing postgraduate stydents. For profesional practitioners, not only will it be of interests to mining and geological engineers, but also to civil engineers, structural mining geologists and geophysicists as a standard work for professional reference purposes.

Fundamentals and Applications of Rock Mechanics Book Excerpt:

Rock mechanics is a first course in the field of mining and geotechnical engineering. Over the last decades, the concepts and applications of rock mechanics have evolved tremendously for understanding the stability and safety of structures made of/on the rock masses. This book elaborates the fundamental concepts of rock mechanics for designing and analysis of structures and excavations for a variety of applications. The text includes a fine blend of theory and worked-out examples and applications, and also emphasises the basics of stress and strain analysis, volume–weight relationship, rock mass classification systems, in situ stress measurements, stresses around underground opening, pillar and support design, subsidence, slope stability, rock failure criteria and behaviour of jointed rock mass. Numerical analysis procedures and interaction between rock bolts and rock masses are also introduced emphasising the mechanics and applications in rock engineering. Besides undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil (including geotechnical), mining and petroleum engineering, the book will also benefit the practicing engineers and researchers, who wish to acquaint themselves with state-of-the-art techniques of rock mechanics and its applications. Overall, this textbook is useful for both elementary as well as advanced learning.
