More About This Title Engineering Design aspects in Geomechanics and Ground Control for Mining and other Excavations

English

This book covers rock mass and ground behavior surrounding an excavation. It provides analytical, tabulated, and graphical design guides for ground reinforcement and/or support under static, dynamic, passive, and active conditions. Case studies and practical examples are also incorporated.
The book is intended for the engineers, researchers, consultants, managers, teachers, and students who are engaged in the fields of mining engineering, civil engineering, geological engineering, geomechanic, geotechnical, rock mechanics, ground control, petroleum engineering, and those who are active in any kind of surface or underground excavation, drilling and blasting.
