This comprehensive introduction to rock mechanics treats the basics of rock mechanics in a clear and straightforward manner and discusses important design problems in terms of the mechanics of materials. This extended second edition includes an additional chapter on rock bursts and bumps, a part on basic dynamics, and numerous additional examples and exercises throughout the chapters.
Developed for a complete class in rock engineering, Design Analysis in Rock Mechanics, Second Edition uniquely combines the design of surface and underground rock excavations and addresses:
The numerous exercises and examples familiarize the reader with solving basic practical problems in rock mechanics through various design analysis techniques and their applications. Supporting the main text, appendices provide supplementary information about rock, joint, and composite properties, rock mass classification schemes, useful formulas, and an extensive literature list. The large selection of problems at the end of each chapter can be used for homework assignments.
Explanatory and illustrative in character, this volume is suited for courses in rock mechanics, rock engineering and geological engineering design for undergraduate and first-year graduate students in mining, civil engineering, and applied earth sciences. Moreover, it will form a good introduction to the subject of rock mechanics for earth scientists and engineers from other disciplines.

W.G. Pariseau studied Mining Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle and obtained his Ph.D. Degree from the University of Minnesota. Throughout his career, he gathered many years of experience in teaching, research and in consulting for government agencies and mining companies. He received several prestigious awards for his outstanding work and teaching skills. He recently achieved emeritus status as the Malcolm McKinnon Professor (endowed chair) in the Department of Mining Engineering at the University of Utah and maintains an active presence in several professional societies and editorial boards.Review:
Praise for the Previous Edition
"[...] sufficiently wide and deep in its coverage of rock mechanics concepts applied to mine design to deserve a place on the bookshelf of every mining geotechnical engineer, and in the library at every mine site."
―J.P. Harrison, IJRMMS, 44, 2007
"Professor Pariseau has written a book that is perfectly suited to his undergraduate students. ... If you are in the market for a book that teaches the fundamentals of mining engineering, you will find this to be an excellent book for that purpose."
―Kevin J. Hind, New Zealand Geomechanics News, 83, June 2012
