Summary
"Rock Engineering in Difficult Ground Conditions Soft Rocks and Karst contains the Proceedings of the Regional Symposium of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM), which was held 29 to 31 October 2009 in Cavtat near Dubrovnik, Croatia. It is a continuation of the successful series of regional ISRM symposia for Europe, which began in 1992 in Chester, UK. EUROCK 2009 was organized by the Croatian Geotechnical Society. Rock Engineering in Difficult Ground Conditions Soft Rocks and Karst contains 7 keynote lectures and 129 papers classified in 7 themes as follows:- Geological and hydrogeological properties of karst regions;- Rock properties, testing methods and site characterization;- Design methods and analyses;- Monitoring and back analysis;- Excavation and support;- Environmental aspects of geotechnical engineering in karst regions; and- Case histories. Rock Engineering in Difficult Ground Conditions Soft Rocks and Karst will be of interest to professionals, engineers, and academics involved in rock mechanics and rock engineering."--Provided by publisher
