During the last two decades rock mechanics in Europe has been undergoing some major transformation. The reduction of mining activities in Europe affects heavily on rock mechanics teaching and research at universities and institutes. At the same time, new emerging activities, notably, underground infrastructure construction, geothermal energy development, radioactive waste and CO2 repository, and natural hazard management, are creating new opportunities of research and engineering. Rock mechanics today is closely associated with, and indeed part of, construction, energy, and environmental engineering. Rock Mechanics in Civil and Environmental Engineering collects 200 papers presented at the European Rock Mechanics Symposium EUROCK 2010, covering recent developments in rock mechanics. Topics include: rock mechanics theory, rock dynamics and rate dependent behaviour, laboratory and field test techniques, numerical modelling methods, and rock mechanics applications to engineering design, tunnel excavation and support, slope stabilisation, radioactive waste repository, petroleum and hydropower energy, earthquake and natural hazard management. The book will be invaluable to academics and engineers involved and interested in rock mechanics and rock.

Rock Dynamics: From Research to Engineering is a collection of the scientic and technical papers presented at the Second International Conference on Rock Dynamics and Applications (RocDyn-2, Suzhou, China, 18-19 May 2016). The book has four sections. The first section contains 8 keynote papers, covering a wide range of dynamic issues related to rock mechanics and rock engineering, from rock failure mechanism and stress wave propagation to seismic behaviour and impact. Section 2 includes papers on rock dynamic theory and numerical modelling, focussing on theoretical aspects of rock fracture dynamics, wave propagation, numerical methods and numerical modelling works. Papers on laboratory testing and experimental techniques are collected in Section 3, including new testing facilities, data monitoring and data analysis. Section 4 deals with case studies and engineering applications, and presents state-of-the-art papers on rock engineering related to dynamic conditions such as earthquake and blasting. Rock Dynamics: From Research to Engineering will serve as a must-have reference, presenting the results of recent developments in rock dynamics scienti c research and rock dynamics engineering applications.

Ore extraction through surface and underground mining continues to involve deeper excavations in more complex rock mass conditions. Communities and infrastructure are increasingly exposed to rock slope hazards as they expand further into rugged mountainous terrains. Energy needs are accelerating the development of new hydroelectric dams and exploitation of more complex hydrocarbon deposits, such as oil sands. Scientists and engineers are seeking to improve their understanding and management of our planet and its environment through the development of deep, underground laboratories and storage facilities. These two volumes serve as a comprehensive reference work, summarizing the current state-of-the-art in rock mechanics and rock engineering in Canada, the U.S. and beyond. The first volume of the proceedings presents papers describing new technologies, ideas and insights into fundamental rock mechanics. The second volume presents a collection of rock engineering case histories relevant to the major themes of the symposium: rock slope hazards, geotechnical infrastructure, surface and underground mining, and petroleum exploitation. Rock Mechanics: Meeting Society's Challenges and Demands comprises the Proceedings of the 1st Canada-U.S. Rock Mechanics Symposium, held in Vancouver, Canada, from May 27 to 31, 2007, as jointly organized by the Canadian Rock Mechanics Association (CARMA) and the American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA).
