About this book

Introduction

This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the theory and principle of the Hoek-Brown (HB) failure criterion, methods or guidelines for estimating the HB input parameters, and the methodology of application of the HB criterion in rock engineering projects.

It aims to help researchers, engineers and research students who work in the area of rock mechanics and mining engineering. Academics can quickly obtain an overview of the state of the art of the theory and principle of the Hoek-Brown criterion by reading the book before they advance their researches on the topics related to rock failure criteria. Geotechnical engineers can select appropriate Hoek-Brown input parameters for the design and analysis of rock engineering projects with the help of the principles introduced in this book. Research students may use the book as a textbook to learn the principle of rock mechanics related to rock mass properties.

About the authors

Jianping Zuo obtained his Ph.D. from China University of Mining and Technology (Beijing), China in 2006. He is a professor of Engineering Mechanics and the dean of School of Mechanics and Civil Engineering in CUMTB. He has visited Brown University as a senior visiting scholar and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as a visiting scholar. He has been involved in rock mechanics and mining engineering research, consulting and teaching for more than 13 years. He is in charge of and/or participates in 12 scientific research projects, funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China, National Basic Research Program of China (973 Program), Beijing Major Scientific and Technological Achievements into Ground Cultivation Project, the 111 Project and Coal Mines Corporations. He is the author or co-author of more than 130 peer-review journal papers and 20 conference papers. He has applied 28 patents, and received 12 Natural Science and Technology Progress Awards.

Jiayi Shen received his PhD in rock mechanics in The University of Adelaide (U of A) in Australia. After his PhD, he worked as a research associate in mining rock mechanics in U of A for a short period. Then, he was employed as a Lecturer of rock mechanics in the Zhejiang University in 2013 and then Associate Professor in 2015. Dr. Shen has more than 10 years experience in rock mechanics for mining and civil engineering. His major interests are stability of rock masses and failure mechanics of rock masses. He has more than 20 scientific publications to his name. Dr. Shen has practical expertise in stability rock slopes and underground excavations, in-situ measurements and interpretations.
