This book offers a practical reference guide to soft rock mechanics for engineers and scientists. Written by recognized experts, it will benefit professionals, contractors, academics, researchers and students working on rock engineering projects in the fields of civil engineering, mining and construction engineering. Soft Rock Mechanics and Engineering covers a specific subject of great relevance in Rock Mechanics – and one that is directly connected to the design of geotechnical structures under difficult ground conditions. The book addresses practical issues related to the geomechanical properties of these types of rock masses and their characterization, while also discussing advances regarding in situ investigation, safety, and monitoring of geotechnical structures in soft rocks. Lastly, it presents important case histories involving tunnelling, dam foundations, coal and open pit mines and landslides.

Rock mechanics is a first course in the field of mining and geotechnical engineering. Over the last decades, the concepts and applications of rock mechanics have evolved tremendously for understanding the stability and safety of structures made of/on the rock masses. This book elaborates the fundamental concepts of rock mechanics for designing and analysis of structures and excavations for a variety of applications. The text includes a fine blend of theory and worked-out examples and applications, and also emphasises the basics of stress and strain analysis, volume–weight relationship, rock mass classification systems, in situ stress measurements, stresses around underground opening, pillar and support design, subsidence, slope stability, rock failure criteria and behaviour of jointed rock mass. Numerical analysis procedures and interaction between rock bolts and rock masses are also introduced emphasising the mechanics and applications in rock engineering. Besides undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil (including geotechnical), mining and petroleum engineering, the book will also benefit the practicing engineers and researchers, who wish to acquaint themselves with state-of-the-art techniques of rock mechanics and its applications. Overall, this textbook is useful for both elementary as well as advanced learning.

The two-volume set Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering is concerned with the application of the principles of mechanics to physical, chemical and electro-magnetic processes in the upper-most layers of the earth and the design and construction of the rock structures associated with civil engineering and exploitation or extraction of natural resources in mining and petroleum engineering. Volume 1, Fundamentals of Rock Mechanics, discusses rock-constituting elements, discontinuities and their behavior under various physical and chemical actions in nature. The governing equations together with constitutive laws and experimental techniques and the solution techniques are explained and some examples of applications are given. A number of chapters are devoted to possible new directions in rock mechanics. Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering is intended to be a fundamental resource for younger generations and newcomers and a reference book for experts specialized in Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering and associated with the fields of mining, civil and petroleum engineering, engineering geology, and/or specialized in Geophysics and concerned with earthquake science and engineering.

The basic concepts of continuous media mechanics are reviewed in the first part of this book. More particularly, the concept of plasticity is introduced from a thermodynamics standpoint. The second part, devoted to material strain mechanics, is an approach to the major constitutive laws independent of time. Emphasis is laid on solid-fluid-temperature coupling (thermoporous media). Two specific plasticity models are presented - the Cambridge model for clays, the Lade model for chalk. The third part deals with the mechanisms of material cohesion loss. A description of the conventional theory of elastic brittle fracture is followed by an examination of extremely recent concepts like homogenization or statistical damage to brittle materials. The final chapter examines the fundamental problem of shearing bands and the theory of bifurcation as an approach to solving it.

The world requires an increasing number of underground facilities for applications such as storage, waste repositories and traffic. Accurate prediction of the stability and deformation of these facilities is essential, and calls for model calculations using reliable and comprehensive constitutive equations describing the mechanical behaviour of the rocks involved, particularly the time-dependent effects. Here the authors combine their knowledge and personal experience in this field to encourage the practical use of material laws based on a sound physical and mathematical basis. Further discussion and research on the time-dependent behaviour of rocks and related materials is supported in the text by more than 200 figures. The text covers elasticity, creep, dilatancy, creep failure and short term failure, experimental techniques and test results, micromechanical deformation mechanisms, viscoplasticity and computation using appropriate constitutive equations, including many fundamental model calculations. Rock mechanics incorporates aspects of many disciplines including structural geology, soil mechanics, material sciences, civil, mining and petroleum engineering, seismology and geophysics. This book will therefore find a wide appreciation amongst engineers, researchers and graduate students in these and other related areas.
