By B.H.G. Bardy & E.T. Brown. This new edition has been completely revised to reflect the notable innovations in mining engineering and the remarkable developments in the science of rock mechanics and the practice of rock engineering that have taken place over the last two decades. Based on extensive professional, research and teaching experience, this book will provide an authoritative and comprehensive text for final year undergraduates and commencing post graduate students. For professional practitioners, not only will it be of interest to mining and geological engineers, but also to civil engineers, structural and mining geologists and geophysicists as a standard work for professional reference purposes.
