This course for mining and geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists introduces the principles of modern rock engineering theory and practice. It traces the historical development of rock engineering, discusses the selection of appropriate design criteria, and presents the concepts and application of rock mass classification schemes. The course includes numerous practical examples of the application of rock engineering principles.

This course is the first in a suite of five Practical Rock Engineering courses. Other titles in the suite include Structural Analysis, Slope Stability and Rockfalls, Stress Analysis, and Excavation and Support.

The entire suite of courses has been upgraded and enhanced by the author (April 2007) to reflect advances in theory and practice that have occurred in recent years. Enhancements include the provision of many new figures and images.

Course Content
Practical Rock Engineering 1 - Introduction consists of 14 viewing sessions of 30 - 60 minutes each with supporting figures, examples, design tables and an extensive author reference, plus interactive course reviews. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 14 hours of viewing content.
