Book Description

Environmental issues are high on the public agenda and engineering projects need to take environmental concerns on board. Volcanic Rocks, contains papers from the ISRM Workshop W2 (Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal 14-15 July 2007), and  focuses specifically on problems associated with construction activities in areas of volcanic rock. The book highlights novel approaches and solutions to engineering problems in volcanic areas, covering a variety of topical themes, which include: characterization of volcanic formations; case studies; construction materials; earthquake engineering and rock dynamics; foundations; slope stability, and tunnelling.

Volcanic Rocks will be invaluable to researchers, professionals and students in Geology, Civil Engineering, Engineering Geology, and Geotechnical Engineering.
