Book Description:
Engineering rock mechanics: An introduction to the principles book is used to design structures built in rock. These structures encompass building foundations, dams, slopes, shafts, tunnels, caverns, hydroelectric schemes, mines, radioactive waste and geothermal energy projects: in short, any structure built on or in a rock mass. Despite the variety of projects that use rock engineering, the principles remain the same. This eBook clearly and systematically explains the key principles behind rock engineering.
Engineering Rock Mechanics: An introduction to the principles by John A. Hudson, John P. Harrison book covers the basic rock mechanics principles, how to study the interactions between these principles and a discussion on the fundamentals of excavation and support and the application of these in the design of surface and underground structures. These book is useful as source of information for the benefit of engineers involved in rock mechanics and rock engineering.
