Abstract:

Because of important advances in rock mechanics in recent years, the American Geological Institute proposed that a special course in rock mechanics be held for college teachers of structural geology. Dr. E. G. Bombolakis designed the course at the request of AGI, and Dr. William Chapple provided initial assistance in the planning of course content. The design was reviewed by AGI, lecturers, and the NAS-NRC Rock Mechanics Committee. Financial support was granted through the Advanced Science Seminar Projects of NSF under grant GZ-405. One of the principal objectives proposed to NSF was to have AGI make revised and edited lecture notes available on a nonprofit basis. The production of a raw set of lecture notes under the NSF grant was an initial step in this direction. The limited printing of lecture notes in the present form is another step in this direction.
