Synopses & Reviews
Unique on the subject, this work deals typically with the engineering of shale and not with shale as a material itself. It addresses the engineering aspects and parameters related to chemical, mechanical, and thermal properties, and integrates them into engineering models that can be applied in deep engineering projects, mining, and other civil works. Documenting all information currently available, it will serve as a reference to model designers and site engineers working with shale in the petroleum and other industries. The text is suitable for use in advanced and professional courses in petroleum, mining, geological and civil engineering, and drilling.
