## ABSTRACT

**
**

**Rock Dynamics – Experiments, Theories and Applications **is a collection of scientific and technical papers presented at the Third International Conference on Rock Dynamics and Applications (RocDyn-3, Trondheim, Norway, 26-27 June 2018). The papers in the book reflect the recent developments in experiment and theory as well as engineering applications of rock dynamics. Rock dynamics studies the response of rock and rock masses under dynamic loading and during the state transition from static loading to kinetic movement. It also includes the study of engineering countermeasures to dynamic instability of rock and rock masses. The topics in the book include:

- Dynamic theories

- Numerical simulation

- Propagation of stress waves

- Dynamic tests of rock

- Stability of underground openings under dynamic loading

- Rockburst

- Seismic monitoring

- Dynamic rock support

- Blasting

- Earthquake-related rock structure damage, etc.

Applications, such as rockburst, dynamic rock support, seismic monitoring, blasting and earthquake-related rock structure damage, are paid special attention in **Rock Dynamics – Experiments, Theories and Applications**. The papers, from specialists both from mining and tunnelling branches, discuss commonly interested dynamic issues. Their experience and knowledge in the application of rock dynamics are extremely valuable for all academics, engineers and professionals who work with rock dynamics.
