The purpose of ground support is to safely maintain excavations for their expected lifespan. The effectiveness of ground support can be seen both in terms of personnel and equipment safety, and in terms of allowing the most economic extraction. Scientists, practitioners and technology developers have contributed to this volume, which covers rock mass characterisation, open pit mining and tunnelling. The methods described include modelling and dynamic testing, while international case studies provide ample illustration of both failures and triumphs in ground support.
