About this book

This reference presents the state-of-the-art in experimental research, data analysis and engineering applications of the sealing of boreholes. Some aspects are generalized to address the sealing of underground openings in rock, and the book summarizes the mechanical and hydraulic performance of borehole seals.

...anyone who has to deal with the problems of installing safe and reliable long term seals in a borehole will benefit from reading some of the papers in the book - Geoscientist
