This course for mining and geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists presents the principles of in situ and induced stresses, derivation of rock mass properties, and stress analysis techniques and their application to both tunnels and large underground excavations. The practical application of theory and principles is illustrated by several case studies.
This course is the fourth in a suite of five Practical Rock Engineering courses. Other titles in the suite include Introduction, Structural Analysis, Slope Stability and Rockfalls, and Excavation and Support.
The entire suite of courses has been upgraded and enhanced by the author to reflect advances in theory and practice that have occurred in recent years. Enhancements include the provision of many new figures and images.
Practical Rock Engineering 4 - Stress Analysis consists of 22 viewing sessions of 30 - 60 minutes each with supporting figures, examples, design tables and an extensive author reference, plus interactive course reviews. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 25 hours of viewing content.
