Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks presents a current and comprehensive report on this emerging field that bridges the areas of geology and mechanics. It is of direct interest to a wide spectrum of earth scientists and engineers who are concerned with upper-crust mechanics and fluid movements, the most important fluids being oil and water.
This authoritative book is the result of a collaborative effort between scientists in academic institutions and industry. It examines important issues such as subsidence, geological fault formation, earthquake faulting, hydraulic fracturing, transport of fluids, and natural and direct applications.
Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks provides a unique interdisciplinary viewpoint, as well as case studies, conclusions, and recommendations for further research.
* Covers the physical, chemical, and mechanical analysis of porous saturated rock deformation on both large and small scales
* Discusses the latest developments of importance to engineers and geologists
* Examines natural and direct applications
* Incorporates numerous equations and illustrations including an online image gallery: books.elsevier.com/companions/0123053552
* Includes extensive bibliographies for each chapter

Industry Reviews

Excerpt from the Foreword by James R. Rice, Harvard University, Cambridge

"...the topic of this book is of major interest to a wide spectrum of earth scientists and engineers. That is all the more so because of the effectiveness of the presentation. The editors and their contributing authors, together constituting some fo the most notable scientists on the mechanics of fluid-saturated rocks, have assembled a volume of remarkable soundness ..."
