Discontinuity Analysis for Rock Engineering

Author: Stephen D Priest
Publisher: Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint : Springer, 1993.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Bibliographic data : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book aims to bridge the gap between the descriptive methods of the geologist and the analytical methods of the rock mechanics engineer as applied to discontinuity characteristics. It does not pretend to be the final word on the topic, but rather seeks to explain in simple terms, basic ideas that can be built upon.
