Description

The contributions include the state-of-the-art keynote and special papers authored by nine leading researchers to cover the hottest and newest topics in modern rock engineering. The theme of the 3rd ARMS was set to be 'Contribution of Rock Mechanics to the New Century' in response to the needs of the engineering and the construction community and to promote dialog and exchange between academia and practice in various aspects of the rock mechanics and rock engineering. The contributions contained in the two volumes of proceedings cover various topics such as visualization in rock engineering, risk and hazard management in rock engineering, energy development and environment preservation, development in rock mechanics and rock engineering and so on; thus providing a useful source of references for updated information not only for students and researchers, but also for practicing rock engineers.
