Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering publishes original research on the experimental and theoretical aspects of rock mechanics, including laboratory and field testing, computational methods, design principles and site investigation. Coverage also includes case histories on design and construction of structures in rock and review papers.
The journal maintains the strong link between engineering geology and rock engineering. It provides a bridge between fundamental developments and practical applications such as underground openings, large dam foundations, rock slopes.
Specific topics also include but are not restricted to energy related rock mechanics, petroleum engineering, geothermal systems, energy storage, greenhouse gas sequestration, and waste disposal.
 

  • Covers the experimental and theoretical aspects of rock mechanics
  • Examines laboratory and field testing, methods of computation and field observation of structural behavior
  • Maintains the links between engineering geology and rock engineering
  • 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
