The first book to focus on risk and uncertainty in ground conditions, Rock Engineering explains the geological principles and concepts required for successful geotechnical design and engineering of underground excavations. The book sets out the principles and techniques required in geology and rock engineering, including details on the evaluation of uncertainties in the geological and ground conditions, to support good practice in the design and engineering of underground projects. New to this edition: Updated throughout in line with new research results and new examples New aspects on swelling rock (rock geology) and a more detailed description of testing swelling rock New section on engineering geological field registrations with forecast on conditions in tunnel New sections on production capacity for drill and blast and for TBM".

This fully updated edition has added focus on rock engineering applications in design, planning and excavation. Special chapters have been added dealing with the practical use of the Euro Code in rock design, the design principles of some special underground projects and three case histories. The ambition is to better cover the complex engineering geological process in rock construction from ground investigation to execution. Rock Engineering, Second Edition: ¢¢outlines strategies for investigating different ground conditions ¢¢discusses new technology and methodology for detecting and analysing risks, and ensuring safety, accountability and sustainability is maintained ¢¢applies geological principles in rock engineering to detailed case study examples ¢¢explains the key principles of design of surface and underground structures ¢¢evaluates uncertainties in geological ground conditions Rock Engineering is a valuable reference tool for geotechnical engineers, geologists, consultants, contractors, and advanced students on rock engineering and engineering geology courses.
