By William G. Pariseau
This comprehensive introduction treats the basics of rock mechanics in a clear and straightforward manner and discusses important design problems in terms of the mechanics of materials. Numerous exercises and examples familiarize the reader with solving practical problems in rock mechanics through various design analysis techniques and their applications.
The major applications addressed in this book are:
- rock slope stability in surface excavations
- shaft and tunnel stability
- entries and pillars in stratified ground
- three-dimensional caverns
- geometry and forces of chimney caving.
Supporting the main text, the appendices provide supplementary information about rock, joint, and composite properties, rock mass classification schemes, useful formulas, and an extensive literature list. A course instructor’s solution manual is available for home assignments that are posed at the end of each chapter.
Explanatory and illustrative in character, this book is an ideal course book in rock mechanics for undergraduate and first year graduate students in mining and civil engineering and a useful introduction to rock mechanics for earth scientists and engineers from other disciplines.
