This book is for anyone involved in designing or implementing engineered structures in or on rock. It is intended to hone the skills of students in applying principles to real-world design situations. It is also a comprehensive text for mining engineers, civil engineers, and engineering geologists.

Chapters include: rock characterization for rock mechanics design; uniaxial testing of rock in compression; tensile, triaxial and shear strength of rock; time-dependent behavior of rocks; properties of rocks; large-scale in situ testing of rock mass; evaluation of rock mass parameters by borehole testing; measurement of stress in rock; design of structures in rock; stability of underground openings by mathematical modeling; design and stability of pillars and associated structures; design and stability of rib pillars and chain pillars in longwall mining; structural stability of excavations in jointed rock; supports in mining and tunneling; mining subsidence; stability analysis of surface mining slopes; and risk analysis for design in geomechanics.
