Winner of the 2004 Claire P. Holdredge Award of the Association of Engineering Geologists (USA). The only book to concentrate on the relationship between geology and its implications for construction, this book covers the full scope of the subject from site investigation through to the complexities of reservoirs and dam sites. Features include international case studies throughout, and summaries of accepted practice, plus sections on waste disposal, and contaminated land.

The aim of this major reference work is to provide a first point of entry to the literature for the researchers in any field relating to structural integrity in the form of a definitive research/reference tool which links the various sub-disciplines that comprise the whole of structural integrity. Special emphasis will be given to the interaction between mechanics and materials and structural integrity applications. Because of the interdisciplinary and applied nature of the work, it will be of interest to mechanical engineers and materials scientists from both academic and industrial backgrounds including bioengineering, interface engineering and nanotechnology. The scope of this work encompasses, but is not restricted to: fracture mechanics, fatigue, creep, materials, dynamics, environmental degradation, numerical methods, failure mechanisms and damage mechanics, interfacial fracture and nano-technology, structural analysis, surface behaviour and heart valves. The structures under consideration include: pressure vessels and piping, off-shore structures, gas installations and pipelines, chemical plants, aircraft, railways, bridges, plates and shells, electronic circuits, interfaces, nanotechnology, artificial organs, biomaterial prostheses, cast structures, mining... and more. Case studies will form an integral part of the work.

Comprehensive Rock Engineering: Principles, Practice, & Projects, Volume 4: Excavation, Support, and Monitoring focuses on rock mechanics research and engineering, including excavation, drilling, blasting, and collapse mechanisms of boreholes. The selection first offers information on the construction process, mechanisms of rock fragmentation by blasting, and methods of improving blasting operations. Discussions focus on excavation, support, monitoring, stress wave mechanics, crater blasting, applications in construction and quarry blasting, fragmentation, damage, and environmental aspects. The text also ponders on the regulations, methods, and control techniques of blast monitoring and blast vibration monitoring for rock engineering. The publication takes a look at computer modeling and simulation of percussive drilling of rocks, mechanics of rock cutting, theoretical and practical rules for mechanical rock excavation, and use of water jets for rock excavation. Topics include drag pick cutting, excavating machines, adaptation of mechanical excavation to a harsh environment, abrasive water jets, and combined use of high pressure jets and mechanical cutting tools. The manuscript also examines design of support for underground excavations; development of tunnel support philosophy; and an overview of tunnel, underground excavation, and boreholes collapse mechanisms. The selection is a valuable reference for readers and rock engineering practitioners interested in pursuing research on rock engineering.
