Rock mechanics is the study of the mechanical behavior of subsurface sedimentary strata and rocks that are formed. The basic principle is that rock simply responds to stress by changing in volume or form.

The change in the rock volume or form due to the applied stress is called strain. Rocks subjected to compressive stress (+) or tensile stress (−) can go through three stages of strain.

Rock tunnelling involves: Rock excavation – to make a hole. Rock support – to sustain the hole. Rock Excavation: Excavation technology is primarily driven by rock excavation machine technology. Rock Support: Support technology is largely driven by rock mechanics science.

Although Rock Mechanics addresses many of the rock mechanics issues which arise in underground mining engineering, it is not a text exclusively for mining applications.

It consists of five categories of topics on the science and practice of rock engineering: basic engineering principles relevant to rock mechanics; mechanical properties of rock and rock masses; design of underground excavations.
