9780415809238: Rock Mechanics: An Introduction

Rock mechanics is a multidisciplinary subject combining geology, geophysics, and engineering and applying the principles of mechanics to study the engineering behavior of the rock mass. With wide application, a solid grasp of this topic is invaluable to anyone studying or working in civil, mining, petroleum, and geological engineering. Rock Mechanics: An Introduction presents the fundamental principles of rock mechanics in a clear, easy-to-comprehend manner for readers with little or no background in this field.

The text includes a brief introduction to geology and covers stereographic projections, laboratory testing, strength and deformation of rock masses, slope stability, foundations, and more. The authors―academics who have written several books in geotechnical engineering―have used their extensive teaching experience to create this accessible textbook. They present complex material in a lucid and simple way with numerical examples to illustrate the concepts, providing an introductory book that can be used as a textbook in civil and geological engineering programs and as a general reference book for professional engineers.

Review:

"These topics give an excellent introduction to the subject. ... very easy to follow ... A must for all those dealing with civil engineering."
―Prof. D.N. Singh, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India

"The book has better coverage of topics relevant to rock engineering, good practical examples, [and it is] written by experts in the area."
―Professor G L Sivakumar Babu, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore

"I think the topics are very relevant for undergraduates ... . The topics cover basic rock mechanics and deal with subjects most important to practicing engineers. The content provides a good introduction to anyone who is planning to enter the profession. ... It is an excellent book, very useful for engineering undergraduates and graduates. The book is well written and easy to understand, and I am sure it would be a very popular textbook."
―Jay Ameratunga, Senior Principal, Coffey Geotechnics Pty Ltd, Newstead, Queensland, Australia
