Papers in the proceedings of the 32nd U.S. Symposium on Rock Mechanics were solicited to address the theme of 'Rock Mechanics as a Multidisciplinary Science'. The major goal was to assemble scientists and practitioners from various fields with interrelated interests in rock mechanics to share their common problems and approaches. The proceedings include three papers related to a special session on 'Lunar Rock Mechanics', as well as 121 technical papers covering areas such as: field observations, in-situ stresses, instrumentation/measurement techniques, fracturing, rock properties, dynamics/seismicity, modelling, laboratory testing, discontinuities/fluid flow, design, wellbore stability, and analysis.

Engineers wishing to build structures on or in rock use the relatively new discipline known as rock mechanics. Comprehensive Rock Engineering is an up-to-date comprehensive work of reference containing a compilation of knowledge in one coherent publication. Clearly illustrated throughout, this multi-volume publication covers every aspect of rock mechanics and rock engineering. The work is arranged in five volumes under the themes: Fundamentals; Analysis and Design Methods; Rock Testing and Site Characterization; Excavation, Support and Monitoring; and Surface and Underground Project Case Histories, providing information for rock engineering application.
