Book Description

Rock Slope Engineering: Civil Applications 5th edition covers the design; investigation; excavation and remediation of man-made rock cuts and natural slopes; primarily for civil engineering applications. It presents design information on structural geology; shear strength of rock and ground water; including weathered rock. Slope design methods are discussed for planar; circular; wedge and toppling failures; including seismic design and numerical analysis. Information is also provided on slope stabilization; blasting; movement monitoring and civil engineering applications.

This 5th edition has been extensively up-dated; with new chapters on weathered rock; including shear strength in relation to weathering grades; and seismic design of rock slopes for pseudo-static stability and Newmark displacement. It now includes the use of remote sensing techniques such as LiDAR to monitor slope movement and collect structural geology data. The chapter on numerical analysis has been revised with emphasis on civil applications.

The etextbook is written for practitioners working in the fields of energy and industrial development; transportation; and graduate and undergraduate level courses in geological engineering.
