Rock Dynamics: From Research to Engineering is a collection of the scientic and technical papers presented at the Second International Conference on Rock Dynamics and Applications (RocDyn-2, Suzhou, China, 18-19 May 2016). The book has four sections. The first section contains 8 keynote papers, covering a wide range of dynamic issues related to rock mechanics and rock engineering, from rock failure mechanism and stress wave propagation to seismic behaviour and impact. Section 2 includes papers on rock dynamic theory and numerical modelling, focussing on theoretical aspects of rock fracture dynamics, wave propagation, numerical methods and numerical modelling works. Papers on laboratory testing and experimental techniques are collected in Section 3, including new testing facilities, data monitoring and data analysis. Section 4 deals with case studies and engineering applications, and presents state-of-the-art papers on rock engineering related to dynamic conditions such as earthquake and blasting. Rock Dynamics: From Research to Engineering will serve as a must-have reference, presenting the results of recent developments in rock dynamics scienti c research and rock dynamics engineering applications.
