The prerequisite for a successful tunnel or underground project is that geological knowledge is combined with that of rock engineering and design. This book describes how ground and project-related features interact in the rock engineering and design process, and examines modern information based systems that can be used during the construction phase to process geological information. Each topic involved in the design and engineering of underground projects and how they are related to each other are discussed in detail. The authors link the various fields of geology into the rock planning and construction process, guide us through the evaluation of uncertainties in the geological and ground condition, and advise on selecting the appropriate engineering tool for design.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 ...
