Engineers wishing to build structures on, or in, rock use the relatively new discipline known as rock mechanics. Comprehensive Rock Engineering is an authoritative and comprehensive work of reference containing a compilation of knowledge not available from any other source in one coherent publication. Clearly illustrated throughout, this multi-volume publication consists of state-of-the-art articles written by over 200 internationally recognized authorities and covers every aspect of rock mechanics and rock engineering. Comprehensive Rock Engineering is arranged in five volumes under the themes: Fundamentals; Analysis and Design; Rock Testing and Site Characterization; Excavation, Support and Monitoring; and Project Case Histories, providing the key information that is required for any rock engineering application. Case histories and principles relating to specific countries are also included.
