Engineering Disturbed Rock Mass Structural Mechanics: Stress Disturbance and Freeze-Thaw on Rock Structure Deterioration Book Review:

This book is intended as a reference book for advanced graduate students and research engineers in rock mechanics related to mining, civil engineering, etc. Environmental and human-induced loading acting on manmade works is disturbed in essence. During construction and operation of major engineering projects, e.g., civil engineering, mining engineering, hydraulic engineering, bridge engineering and petroleum engineering, the structures built in or on rock mass not only bear the complex in situ conditions, e.g., stress, seepage, faulting, thermal and chemical coupling, but also often encounter a variety of stress disturbances during engineering construction and operation periods, the stress disturbance acted on rock mass structures can be low-medium strain rate, and also high strain rate. Along with the constructions on rock mass, a lot of disasters, e.g., tunnel rockburst, induced seismicity and sand liquefaction, are cyclic and dynamic processes.

Rock Slope Engineering Book Review:

Rock Slope Engineering covers the investigation, design, excavation and remediation of man-made rock cuts and natural slopes, primarily for civil engineering applications. It presents design information on structural geology, shear strength of rock and ground water, including weathered rock. Slope design methods are discussed for planar, wedge, circular and toppling failures, including seismic design and numerical analysis. Information is also provided on blasting, slope stabilization, movement monitoring and civil engineering applications. This fifth edition has been extensively up-dated, with new chapters on weathered rock, including shear strength in relation to weathering grades, and seismic design of rock slopes for pseudo-static stability and Newmark displacement. It now includes the use of remote sensing techniques such as LiDAR to monitor slope movement and collect structural geology data. The chapter on numerical analysis has been revised with emphasis on civil applications. The book is written for practitioners working in the fields of transportation, energy and industrial development, and undergraduate and graduate level courses in geological engineering.

Engineering Geology Book Review:

Engineering Geology is a multidisciplinary subject which interacts with other disciplines, such as mineralogy, petrology, structural geology, hydrogeology, seismic engineering, rock engineering, soil mechanics, geophysics, remote sensing (RS-GIS-GPS), environmental geology, etc. Engineers require a deeper understanding, interpretation and analyses of earth sciences before suggesting engineering designs and remedial measures to combat natural disasters, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, debris flows, tsunamis, and floods. This book covers all aspects of Engineering Geology and is intended to serve as a reference for practicing civil engineers and mining engineers. Engineering Geology has also been designed as a textbook for students pursuing undergraduate and postgraduate courses in advanced/applied geology and earth sciences. A plethora of examples and case studies relevant to the Indian context have been included, for better understanding of the geological challenges faced by engineers.
