Rock Slope Engineering
The Geology and Mathematics of Rock Face Instability and Rockfall Control Design
This modern book is written for graduate civil engineers, engineering geologists, and geologists working in the geotechnical, highways, civil, and mineral extraction industries. It will also be useful for undergraduates studying for those professions.
The overall purpose of this book is to provide the engineer with the real, practical, information, technique, and maths to assess, design, and supervise rock stabilisation works on a day-to-day basis.
The great majority of the diagrams are drawn by Peter Roberts himself, thus reducing possible artistic error through the re-drawing process. The book contains working examples for all numerical procedures, and is Eurocode 7 aligned.
There is arguably no equally comprehensive, practical, or useful book available elsewhere.
