 Summary
 "This classic handbook deals with the geotechnical problems of rock slope design. It has been written for the nonspecialist mining or civil engineer, with worked examples, design charts, coverage of more detailed analytical methods, and ofthe collection and interpretation of geological and groundwater information and tests for the mechanical properties of rock."Provided by publisher
