ISRM Book Series
The ISRM Book Series comprises significant scientific publications in rock mechanics and related disciplines. The aim of the Series is to promote the scientific output of ISRM (International Society for Rock Mechanics).
The Series will be published on a regular basis, according to the emergence of noteworthy scientific developments. Each volume in the Series is prepared independently and focuses on a topical theme. Volumes are published on an occasional basis, and include high quality scientific contributions that have not been published elsewhere before. Contributions will be rigorously peer-reviewed by experts in the field, ensuring strong scientific standards, and are expected to be leading in rock mechanics and related disciplines. The Series may include edited volumes, textbooks, reference works and books on advanced scientific topics. ISRM members benefit from a 40% discount on ISRM Book Series volume purchases.
MAIN FIELDS COVERED BY THE BOOK SERIES
- Rock and rock mass characterization
- Field and Laboratory testing methods in rock mechanics and rock engineering
- Crustal stresses and earthquakes
- Rock dynamics
- Rock mechanics modelling
- Rock engineering design of foundations, slopes, open pit and underground excavations, tunnels and caverns, and other types of works
- Coupling thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical processes in rocks, etc.
- Petroleum Geomechanics
- Preservation of ancient stone monuments
The expected readers of the book are all those involved in rock mechanics and rock engineering activities, in the fields of civil, mining and petroleum engineering, and engineering geology. This includes professionals working in field and laboratory testing, modelling of rock structures, rock engineering design or petroleum geomechanics. The ISRM book series will also be of interest to scientists, researchers and post-graduate students carrying out their investigations in rock mechanics.
