Design Analysis in Rock Mechanics
by William G. Pariseau

Design Analysis in Rock Mechanics treats the basics of rock mechanics in a clear and straightforward manner and discusses important design problems in terms of the mechanics of materials.

Numerous exercises and examples familiarize the reader with solving practical problems in rock mechanics through various design analysis techniques and their applications.

The major applications addressed in this book are:

  • rock slope stability in surface excavations
  • shaft and tunnel stability
  • entries and pillars in stratified ground
  • three-dimensional caverns
  • geometry and forces of chimney caving

Supporting the main text, the appendices provide supplementary information about rock, joint, and composite properties, rock mass classification schemes, useful formulas, and an extensive literature list.
