  • True Triaxial Testing of Rocks

    Edited by Marek Kwasniewski, Xiaochun Li, Manabu Takahashi

    This is the first book ever published on the problems of true triaxial testing of rocks addressing all aspects of true triaxial testing of rocks, including: (i) true triaxial testing techniques and procedures; (ii) test results: strength, deformability, failure mode, permeability, acoustic emission…

  • Experimental Rock Mechanics

    By Kiyoo Mogi

    Fracture and flow of rocks under stress and their geophysical and seismological implications raise fundamental questions in rock mechanics, particularly in the areas of tectonophysics and seismology. This text exclusively addresses the deformation and fracture of rock specimens under general…

  • Mechanical Behaviour of Rocks Under High Pressure Conditions

    By Mitsuhiko Shimada

    Knowledge of the mechanical properties of rocks at high pressure and temperature is fundamental not only for material science but also for earth science, such as for solving the mechanism of earthquakes and tectonic processes. For example, physical bases of the earthquake prediction based on the…

  • Fractals in Rock Mechanics

    By Heping Xie

    Important developments in the progress of the theory of rock mechanics during recent years are based on fractals and damage mechanics. The concept of fractals has proved to be a useful way of describing the statistics of naturally occurring geometrics. Natural objects, from mountains and coastlines…
