In Rockburst the Editor invites the most relevant researchers and practitioners worldwide to discuss this Rock Mechanics phenomenon related to increased stress and energy levels in intact rock introduced by drilling, explosion, blasting and other activities. When critical energy levels are reached, Rockbursts can occur causing human and material losses in mining and tunnelling environment. This book is the most comprehensive information source in English Language to cover Rockburst. Comprised of four main parts, the book covers in detail the theoretical concepts related to Rockburst, introduces the current computational modelling techniques and laboratory tests available. The second part is devoted to Case Studies both in mining coal and metal and tunneling environment worldwide. The third part covers the most recent advances in measurement and monitoring. Special focus is given to the interpretation of the signals and reliability of the systems. The following part addresses warning and risk mitigation through the proposition of single risk assessment index, and a comprehensive warning index to portrait the stress status of the Rock and a success case study. The final part of the book is where mitigation is discussed including best practices for distressing And efficiently support rock. Designed to provide the most comprehensive coverage, Rockburst will provide Mining and Tunneling practicing Engineers both the theoretical background needed to better cope with the phenomenon and the practical advice from Case Studies and practical mitigation actions and techniques. Academics in Rock Mechanics will have in this book a complete reference to better understand Rockburst, analyze stress signals and use computational modelling more efficiently. Understand the fundamental theoretical concepts of Rockbursts; Learn how to analyze signals from current monitoring systems; Apply mitigating techniques in their current works; Identify characteristics that should be measured in order to detect Rockburst risk.
