Advances in Rock-Support and Geotechnical Engineering brings together the latest research results regarding the theory of rock mechanics, its analytical methods and innovative technologies, and its applications in practical engineering. This book is divided into six sections, rock tests, rock bolting, grouted anchor, tunneling engineering, slope engineering, and mining engineering.

Coverage includes fracture hinged arching process and instability characteristics of rock plates, failure modes of rock bolting, scale effects, and loading transfer mechanism of the grouted anchor. Also covered are recent innovations and applications in tunneling engineering, slope engineering, and mining engineering.

This book provides innovative, practical, and rich content that can be used as a valuable reference for researchers undertaking tunneling engineering, slope engineering, mining engineering, and rock mechanics, and for onsite technical personnel and teachers and students studying the topics in related universities.



  • Enriches new theories on failure modes of rock plates, rock bolting mechanisms, and anchor loading transfer
  • Develops new methods of evaluating the stability of slope engineering and the roof stability of the mined-out areas
  • Includes fracture hinged arching process and instability characteristics of rock plates, failure modes of rock bolting, scale effects, and loading transfer mechanism of the grouted anchor
