    Rock mechanics determines how a particular rock reacts when it is put to the use required by mankind for buildings, roads, bridges, dams, tunnels, and other civil engineering uses. It will assess the bearing capacity of the rock on the surface and how the force applied on the rock by the structures being built on it will affect the rock at. Definitions, Fields of Application, Objectives, Historical Development, Rock as Engineering Material, Rock and Rock Mass Classifications. Applications of Theory of Elasticity in Rock Mechanics Note: Figures and tables are obtained by clicking here. Lecture Notes 7: Visco-elasticity and Rock Mechanics Distributed in class.

    (Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering) An excellent book, very well presented, and is a must for the shelves of serious engineers and scientists active or interested in the fields of rock mechanics and rock engineering. Highly recommended. (South African Geographical Journal, ).   Science 21 Feb Vol. , Issue , pp. DOI: /scienceaAuthor: W. F. Brace.

    Methods of excavation of rock in surface and underground mines and construction, ranging from the empiricism of conventional blasting practice to the application of the fundamental mechanics of rock fracture. Graduate-level requirements include a research project. Course Requisites: Knowledge of rock mechanics or consent of instructor. This book is the outcome of the authors long teaching experience and has been designed to meet the needs of Civil Engineering curricula for the courses in Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering of Indian Universities. The book has been written mainly in the S.I. Units, although some problems and examples in the M.K.S. system have been.

Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering covers the experimental and theoretical aspects of rock mechanics, including laboratory and field testing, methods of computation and field observation of structural behavior. The journal maintains the strong link between engineering geology and rock engineering, providing a bridge between fundamental.

Engineering Mechanics I Lecture Notes. This note provides an introduction to the mechanics of materials and structures. You will be introduced to and become familiar with all relevant physical properties and fundamental laws governing the behavior of materials and structures and you will learn how to solve a variety of problems of interest to civil and environmental engineers.

Engineering Rock Mechanics clearly and systematically explains the key principles behind rock engineering. The book covers the basic rock mechanics principles; how to study the interactions between these principles and a discussion on the fundamentals of excavation and support and the application of these in the design of surface and.

Engineering rock mechanics: An introduction to the principles book is used to design structures built in rock. These structures encompass building foundations, dams, slopes, shafts, tunnels, caverns, hydroelectric schemes, mines, radioactive waste and geothermal energy projects: in short, any structure built on or in a rock mass.

Evert Hoek. Evert Hoek was born in Zimbabwe, graduated in mechanical engineering from the University of Cape Town and became involved in rock mechanics in when he started working in research on problems of brittle fracture associated with very deep mines in South Africa.

Although Rock Mechanics addresses many of the rock mechanics issues which arise in underground mining engineering, it is not a text exclusively for mining applications. It consists of five categories of topics on the science and practice of rock engineering: basic engineering principles relevant to rock mechanics; mechanical properties of rock and rock masses; design of underground excavations 5/5(3).

Because rock mechanics can also be used to study structural geology, we emphasize through the title that it is the rock mechanics principles in the engineering context that we are presenting.

The book is based on the content of the integrated engineering rock mechanics course given at Imperial College and on the authors’ engineering experience. The five-volume set “Comprehensive Rock Engineering”, which was published inhas had an important influence on the development of rock mechanics and rock engineering.

Significant and extensive advances and achievements in these fields over the last 20 years now justify the publishing of a comparable, new compilation.

The first edition of Rock Mechanics and Engineering bridged the gap between scientific research on rock mechanics and practical engineering. It was resolutely aimed at giving practical information to geologists, engineering geologists and by: It provides an opportunity for colleagues from all over the world to understand the current developments in the fields of rock mechanics, geotechnical engineering, soil mechanics and foundation engineering, civil engineering, mining engineering, hydraulic engineering.
