Description: This is a comprehensive guide for mining and construction engineers responsible for rock slope stability. This book focuses on rock slope stability, with sections on geological data collection, geotechnical data collection and analysis, surface water and groundwater effects, kinematic and kinetic stability analysis, rock slope stabilization techniques, and rock slope instrumentation and monitoring. Because of the discontinuous nature of rock, the design of stable rock slopes is as much an art as it is applied engineering. Experience can only be achieved from the proper utilization of these theories of soil and rock mechanics, structural geology, and hydrology. Rock Slope Stability is invaluable for engineering geologists, geotechnical engineers, mining engineers, civil engineers, and mine managers— as well as anyone else dedicated to engineering slopes that are stable and safe and that enable a financial return. CONTENTS – Basic Concepts – Rock Mass Properties – Groundwater – The Rockfall Hazard Rating System – Kinematic Slope Stability Analysis – Kinetic Slope Stability – Rock Slope Stabilization Techniques – Geotechnical Instrumentation and Monitoring
