About this book

Engineering geology for underground rocks is a sub-discipline of engineering geology for describing and solving geological engineering problems encountered in underground mining, petroleum and civil engineering. It covers rock mechanics for underground rocks, rock hydraulics, wellbore mechanics, mine geology and mine hydrogeology.

This book clearly and systematically explains underground engineering geology principles, methods, theories and case studies, depicts engineering problems in underground rock engineering and how to study and solve them. It specially emphasizes mechanical and hydraulic couplings in rock engineering for wellbore stability, mining near aquifers and other underground structures where inflow is a problem. Using the methods and models given in this book, the reader is able to analyse underground geological engineering problems and also for the design of underground structures.


Preface.- Introduction.- Variation of coal seam thickness and its detection.- Sedimentary characteristics of coal measures.- Geological structures in mines.- State of in-situ stress.-. Experiments on rock mechanical properties.- Rock failure criteria.- Rockmass structure and mechanics.- Rock hydraulics and mine hydrogeology.- Mine strata failure and mining near aquifers.- Poromechanics and wellbore stability.- Stress and deformation in tunnel and mining panel.- Tunnel and longwall mining stability analyses.- Underground opening design.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "A book devoted to the technical aspects of rock mechanics, important for underground excavations, including mines, tunnels, and deep wells. ! It could be used as a course resource but is more suitable as a reference for practicing engineering geologists or geotechnical engineers. There are numerous references at the ends of the chapters ! . Summing Up: Recommended. Professionals." (C. W. Dimmick, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (7), 2008)
