This comprehensive text addresses the basics of rock mechanics in a clear and straightforward manner. Design problems are addressed 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 are:

  • rock slope stability in surface excavations, from planar block and wedge slides to rotational and toppling failures;
  • shaft and tunnel stability, ranging from naturally-supported openings to analysis and design of artificial support and reinforcement systems;
  • entries and pillars in stratified ground;
  • three-dimensional caverns, with emphasis on backfill and cable bolting; and
  • geometry and forces of chimney caving, combination support and trough subsidence.
  • 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.

Explanatory and illustrative, this book is ideal for undergraduate and first year graduate students in mining and civil engineering as well as a useful introduction to rock mechanics for earth scientists and engineers from other disciplines.
