about this item

Engineering Properties of Rocks, Second Edition, explores the use of typical values or empirical correlations of similar rocks to estimate their specific parameters. Although procedures for measuring most of a rock's properties are standardized and may even be simple, they are time consuming and expensive. In addition, they require well-prepared rock cores, which is often difficult or even impossible for weak rocks.

The book is based on the author's extensive experience and is a single source for the most relevant property correlations currently used in geotechnical gngineering, also exploring discontinuities, strength, deformability, permeability of rock masses, and calculations of stress.

  • Presents a single source for the correlations on rock properties
  • Saves time and resources invested on in situ testing procedures
  • Fully updated with current literature
  • Expanded coverage of rock types and geographical locations
