Support of Underground Excavations in Hard Rock
E. Hoek, P.K. Kaiser, and W.F. Bawden (2000)
A comprehensive volume dealing with the design of rockbolts, dowels, cable bolts and shotcrete for underground excavations in hard rock. Topics covered include rock mass classification systems, shear strength of discontinuities, analysis of structurally controlled failures, in situ and induced stresses, estimating rock mass strength, support design for overstressed rock as well as discussions on different types of underground support.
