Rock Mechanics and Engineering Volume 5: Surface and Underground Projects (Hardback)Xia-Ting Feng (editor)
- We can order this
Surface and Underground Projects is the last volume of the five-volume set Rock Mechanics and Engineering and contains twenty-one chapters from key experts in the following fields:
- Tunnels and Caverns;
- Petroleum Engineering;
- Thermo-/Hydro-Mechanics in Gas Storage, Loading and Radioactive Waste Disposal.
The five-volume set "Comprehensive Rock Engineering", which was published in 1993, has had an important influence on the development of rock mechanics and rock engineering. Significant and extensive advances and achievements in these fields over the last 20 years now justify the publishing of a comparable, new compilation. Rock Mechanics and Engineering represents a highly prestigious, multi-volume work edited by Professor Xia-Ting Feng, with the editorial advice of Professor John A. Hudson. This new compilation offers an extremely wideranging and comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art in rock mechanics and rock engineering and is composed of peer-reviewed, dedicated contributions by all the key experts worldwide.
Key features of this set are that it provides a systematic, global summary of new developments in rock mechanics and rock engineering practices as well as looking ahead to future developments in the fields. Contributors are worldrenowned experts in the fields of rock mechanics and rock engineering, though younger, talented researchers have also been included. The individual volumes cover an extremely wide array of topics grouped under five overarching themes: Principles (Vol. 1), Laboratory and Field Testing (Vol. 2), Analysis, Modelling and Design (Vol. 3), Excavation, Support and Monitoring (Vol. 4) and Surface and Underground Projects (Vol. 5).
This multi-volume work sets a new standard for rock mechanics and engineering compendia and will be the go-to resource for all engineering professionals and academics involved in rock mechanics and engineering for years to come.

"There is no doubt that this compendium not only will be of great assistance to all those working in the subject area, whether in research or practice, but it also marks just how far the subject has developed in the 50+ years since 1962 and especially in the 20+ years since the last such survey."
John A. Hudson, Emeritus Professor, Imperial College London, UK. President of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) 2007-2011
"Rock Mechanics and Engineering represents a highly prestigious, multi-volume work that, as with the first edition, is deftly edited by Professor Feng, along with the editorial advice of Professor John A. Hudson. This new compilation offers an extremely wide-ranging and comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art in rock mechanics and rock engineering and is composed of peer-reviewed, dedicated contributions by all the key experts worldwide.
Impressively comprehensive, exceptionally well organized and presented, this five volume work clearly sets a new standard as a rock mechanics and engineering compendia that will be the indispensable go-to resource for all engineering professionals and academics involved in rock mechanics and engineering for years to come."
