By John W Cosgrove,John A Hudson

The exploration and extraction of the earth's assets are key concerns in international commercial improvement. within the twenty first century, emphasis has more and more being put on geo-engineering defense, engineering responsibility and sustainability. With concentrate on rock engineering tasks, Structural Geology and Rock Engineering makes use of case reviews and an built-in engineering method of offer an knowing of tasks built on or in rock plenty. in response to Professors Cosgrove and Hudson's college instructing at Imperial collage London, in addition to suitable brief direction displays, it explains the tactics required for engineering modelling, layout and construction.

The first 1/2 the e-book offers step by step displays of the foundations of structural geology and rock mechanics with targeted emphasis at the integration among the 2 matters. the second one half the ebook turns ideas into perform. A wealth of functional engineering examples are awarded, together with reviews of bridge foundations, quarries, dams, opencast coal mining, underground rock engineering, old monuments and stone buildings.

This up to date, well-illustrated consultant is perfect for lecturers, researchers and engineers attracted to the research and perform of rock-based initiatives in engineering.
