Walter Wittke, Rock Mechanics Based on an Anisotropic Jointed Rock Model (AJRM)

This book focuses on the fundamentals of rock mechanics as a basis for the safe and economical design and construction of tunnels, dam foundations and slopes in jointed and anisotropic rock.

It is divided into four main parts:

Fundamentals and models,

Analysis and design methods

Exploration, testing and monitoring

Applications and case histories.

The rock mechanical models presented account for the influence of discontinuities on the stress-strain behavior and the permeability of jointed rock masses.
