Book Description

The fifth edition of Rock Slope Engineering: Civil Applications covers topics such as the design, investigation, excavation, and restoration of man-made rock cuttings and natural slopes, with the primary focus being on applications in civil engineering. It provides information on design about structural geology, the shear strength of rock and ground water, and even rock that has been weathered. Methods of slope design are covered, including seismic design and numerical analysis. These methods account for planar, circular, wedge, and toppling failures. In addition to this, information is given regarding the stability of slopes, blasting, movement monitoring, and the uses of civil engineering.

This fifth edition has had significant revisions made to it, including the addition of new chapters on weathered rock. These new chapters cover topics such as seismic design of rock slopes for pseudo-static stability and Newmark displacement, as well as shear strength in relation to weathering grades. In order to monitor slope movement and collect data on structural geology, it now incorporates the use of remote sensing techniques such as LiDAR. The section on numerical analysis has been updated to provide more of an emphasis on its application in the civil sector.

The e-textbook was prepared with practitioners in mind, specifically those working in the domains of energy and industrial development, transportation, and geological engineering courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
