The first book to focus on risk and uncertainty, Rock Engineering explains the geological principles and concepts required for successful geotechnical design and engineering of underground excavations.

With over 80 years combined experience, the authors use their unique practical and theoretical knowledge in applying geology in rock engineering to provide the reader with an understanding of how to work with the inevitable uncertainties in ground conditions on tunnelling and underground projects. Guidance is given on how these uncertainties should be considered in the selection of design tools and how modern information-based systems, such as observational method and dualistic quality control, can be used to deal with unknown conditions uncovered during construction.

Key coverage:
  • Interaction between the ground and project related features
  • Investigation strategy and derivation of investigation results in ground information assessment
  • Methods for detection and analysis of risks and implications for design
  • Uncertainties and strategies for handling them during construction
  • Principles, applications and limitations of the various tools and methods in rock engineering.

Rock Engineering is the essential, internationally applicable, practical guide for engineers and geologists who need to consider ground conditions on underground projects., aAn informative resource for clients, consultants and contractors hoping to understand the risk and uncertainties that can affect the project, this book is also and a valuable reference for advanced students on rock engineering and engineering geology courses.
