ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF ROCKS 2e (pb) 2017
Author: ZHANG
ISBN: 9780128028339
Year: 2017
Publisher: BUTTERWORTH HEINEMANN
Category: GEOLOGY / ECOLOGY
Edition: 2
Format: Paperback
Language: English

 ABOUT THE TITLE
More often than not, it is difficult or even impossible to obtain directly the specific rock parameters of interest using in situ methods. The procedures for measuring most rock properties are also time consuming and expensive. Engineering Properties of Rocks, Second Edition, explores the use of typical values and/or empirical correlations of similar rocks to determine the specific parameters needed. The book is based on the author's extensive experience and offers a single source of information for the evaluation of rock properties. It systematically describes the classification and characterization of intact rock, rock discontinuities, and rock masses, and presents the various indirect methods for estimating the deformability, strength, and permeability of these components as well as the in situ rock stresses.

Presents a single source for the correlations on rock properties. Saves time and resources invested on in situ testing procedures. Fully updated with current literature. Expanded coverage of rock types and geographical locations

About the Author
Professor Zhang conducts research on Rock Mechanics, Rock Engineering, Sustainable Geotechnics, Geoenvironmental Engineering and Earthquake Engineering. He received his Master’s Degree in Geotechnical Engineering from Tongji University, China and in Civil and Environmental Engineering from MIT, USA. His PhD was received in Geotechnical Engineering from MIT. He has published over 50 articles in international peer reviewed journals such as Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Sciences. Currently Prof. Zhang teaches the following courses at graduate level at The University of Arizona:

• Geotechnical Engineering and Design

• Foundation Engineering

• Earth Structures in Geotechnical Engineering

• Ground Improvement

• Geoenvironmental Engineering

Professor Zhang is the Principal Investigator or Co-PI in more than 15 grants and contracts from National and State institutions and Private Companies. He has received awards such as ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Fellow, 2011; First Runner-Up, Young Professor Paper Competition, Deep Foundations Institute, 2008; Arthur D. Little Corporate Star Case Awards, 2001, 2002; Science and Technology Progress Award, China Education Ministry, 1994 ;Outstanding Young Faculty Member Award, Tongji University, Shanghai, China, 1993
