Understanding water circulation in rocks represents a very important element to solving many of the problems linked with civil, environmental and mining engineering. This book offers a synthesis of the actual knowledge about the fluid flow in rocks:

- from the medium characterization and the structural geological survey to the generation of stereonets;

- the evaluation of the hydrogeological parameters using either deterministic or probabilistic methodologies;

- the evaluation of the preferential flow direction considering the change of the hydrogeological structures;

- the methods and models used to simulate the flows.

Three case studies are provided; water circulation and slope instability, hydrogeological risk linked with tunnelling, and hydrogeological risk linked with road construction.

Here's what you say about us...

Laura Scesi is Professor of Applied Geology at the Polytechnic University of Milan. She published about 70 papers and 4 books on protection and optimization of natural resources, technical, geological and hydrogeological investigations for projects, hydraulic circulation in rocks, landslides and risk analysis, underground excavations.

Paola Gattinoni is Researcher in Applied Geology at the Polytechnic University of Milan. She authored about 40 papers on landslides and groundwater modelling, geological, technical and statistical analysis for hydrogeological setting and rock mass characterization, geological and hydrogeological risk assessment, water circulation in fractured rocks.

From the reviews: "This book reviews current knowledge about groundwater flow in aquifers that are in rock instead of porous media. … generally well written. … Scesi and Gattinoni (both, Polytechnic Univ of Milan) provide numerous examples and case studies that highlight the information covered in the chapters. In addition, the authors clearly explain data from research studies. … book is geared toward researchers or professionals in the field but could be used in graduate-level courses. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals and practitioners." (M. E. Lenczewski, Choice, Vol. 47 (9), May, 2010)
