This book focuses on the fundamentals of rock mechanics as a basis for the safe and economical design and construction of tunnels, dam foundations and slopes in jointed and anisotropic rock. It is divided into four main parts: - Fundamentals and models - Analysis and design methods - Exploration, testing and monitoring - Applications and case histories. The rock mechanical models presented account for the influence of discontinuities on the stress-strain behavior and the permeability of jointed rock masses. This book is for: - Civil- and Mining-Engineers - Geologists - Students in the related fields
