  2. Rock Quality, Seismic Velocity, Attenuation and Anisotropy

    By Nick Barton

    Seismic measurements take many forms, and appear to have a universal role in the Earth Sciences. They are the means for most easily and economically interpreting what lies beneath the visible surface. There are huge economic rewards and losses to be made when interpreting the shallow crust or...

  3. Experimental Rock Mechanics

    By Kiyoo Mogi

    Series: Geomechanics Research Series

    Fracture and flow of rocks under stress and their geophysical and seismological implications raise fundamental questions in rock mechanics, particularly in the areas of tectonophysics and seismology. This text exclusively addresses the deformation and fracture of rock specimens under general...

  4. Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formations

    A Field Guide for Geotechnical Engineers

    By Roy E. Hunt

    Properly understanding and characterizing geologic materials and formations is vital for making critical engineering decisions. Identifying and classifying rock masses and soil formations allows reasonable estimation of their characteristic properties. Comprising chapters from the second edition of...

  5. In-Situ Rock Stress

    International Symposium on In-Situ Rock Stress, Trondheim, Norway,19-21 June 2006

    Edited by Ming Lu, Charlie C. Li, Halvor Kjorholt, Halgier Dahle

    Understanding the stress state in the earth’s crust is crucial for engineers working in rock, particularly with regard to underground construction. Experience shows that an adequately high horizontal in-situ stress has a positive effect in stabilizing large span rock caverns close to the ground...

  6. Eurock 2006: Multiphysics Coupling and Long Term Behaviour in Rock Mechanics

    Proceedings of the International Symposium of the International Society for Rock Mechanics, Eurock 2006, Liège, Belgium, 9-12 May 2006

    Edited by Alain van Cotthem, Robert Charlier, Jean-Francois Thimus, Jean-Pierre Tshibangu

    Special emphasis is given to the constitutive behaviour of rock material, including rock mechanics and partial saturation, chemo-mechanics, thermo-hydro-mechanics, weathering and creep. Theoretical concepts, laboratory and field experiments and numerical simulations are discussed. Multiphysics...

  7. Mining and its Impact on the Environment

    By Fred G. Bell, Laurance J. Donnelly

    Winner of the 2007 E.B. Burwell, Jr. Award of the Geological Society of America Mining activity has left a legacy of hazards to the environment, such as waste, unstable ground and contamination, which can be problematic when redeveloping land. This book highlights the effects of past mining and...

  9. Rock Mechanics with Emphasis on Stress

    By Fritz Rummel

    On a global scale, crustal stresses are the result of plate tectonics. On a regional basis, the knowledge of stresses is of vital interest for deep mining, geothermal heat exploitation for electricity generation from deep hot rock formations, safe underground hazardous waste disposal scenarios...
