This festschrift, compiled from the symposium held in honor of W.F. Brace, is a timely overview of fault mechanics and transport properties of rock. State-of-the-art research is presented by internationally recognized experts, who highlight developments in this contemporary area of study subsequent to Bill Brace's pioneering work.
* The strength of brittle rocks
* The effects of stress and stress-induced damage on physical properties of rock
* Permeability and fluid flow in rocks
* The strength of rocks and tectonic processes
