    Rock Characterisation, Modelling and Engineering Design Methods contains the contributions presented at the 3rd ISRM SINOROCK Symposium (Shanghai, China, 18–20 June 2013). The papers contribute to the further development of the overall rock engineering design process through the sequential linkage of the three themes of rock characterisation, modelling and design methods, including feedback from the construction process itself. In addition, they enhance the interaction between the rock mechanics community in China and the rock mechanics communities in other countries.

    Rock Characterisation, Modelling and Engineering Design Methods not only describes the current state-of-the-art in rock characterisation, modelling and design, it also covers the manifold aspects of rock mechanics and rock engineering. The book will be of interest to professionals, engineers and academics involved in the theoretical and practical aspects of rock mechanics and engineering.
