International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Minings Sciences Q1 Unclaimed

Elsevier BV United Kingdom
Unfortunately this journal has not been claimed yet. For this reason, some information may be unavailable.

This journal is concerned with original research, new developments, site measurements and case studies in rock mechanics and rock engineering. It provides an international forum for the publication of high quality papers on the subject of rock mechanics and the application of rock mechanics principles and techniques to mining and civil engineering projects built on or in rock masses. These projects include slopes, open-pit mines, quarries, shafts, tunnels, caverns, underground mines, metro systems, dams and hydro-electric stations, geothermal energy, petroleum engineering, and radioactive waste disposal It has an SJR impact factor of 1,965.
