This work focuses on the impact of human activity on the geological environment and contains over 100 papers dealing with laboratory and field research investigations in geomechanics, geoengineering and mathematical modelling. Topics covered are grouped into eight main themes: response of the rock mass to human impact; slope stability; field research; laboratory research; stability of underground openings; mathematical modelling; stress measurements, and mineral and rock disintegration.... cyu are the elastic moduli, a, j are the coefficients of the heat expansion and TK is the reference (initial) temperature. ...
