6th Rock Mechanics & Tunneling Day, Rosengarten, Mannheim, Germany, 10.06.2021

The 6th Rock Mechanics & Tunneling Day will be organized by WBI Consulting Engineers together with the German Railway Organization for the Project Stuttgart-Ulm and the Civil Engineering Section of the Engineering Association of W├╝rttemberg. Lectures on subjects of rock mechanics and tunneling will be presented by representatives of owners, contractors, consulting engineers and experts.

The Symposium will be held in German. In case more than 20 English speaking participants are registered, a simultaneous translation from German to English will be provided.



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.
