Engineering in Rock Masses is a 26-chapter text that deals with the behavior, investigation, and construction of rock masses. The first chapters review the properties, behavior, classification, and occurrence of groundwater in rock masses. The subsequent chapters discuss the stress analysis, exploration, laboratory testing, geophysical methods, and instrumentation in these materials. These topics are followed by discussions of slope stability, rockfall problems, settlement and bearing capacity, subsidence, and seismic movements of rocks and rock masses. This work also evaluates the role of pumping system, ground freezing, grouting, rock anchors, drilling, blasting, and open excavation. The remaining chapters look into the rock massesa€™ tunneling, underground chambers, shafts, socketed foundations, and retaining structures. This book will be of great value to practicing civil and mining engineers, engineering geologists, and researchers.Base charge Delay element Primary charge Fusehead Figure 20.18 Electrical detonator with pyrotechnic delay element 20.3.2 Todaya#39;s ...
