This encyclopedic monograph expresses nearly 40 years of Nick Barton's research interests in engineering classification of rock masses. Rock Quality, Seismic Velocity, Attenuation, and Anisotropy is organized into two basic parts: Chapters 1 through 9 in Part I pertain to civil engineering scales and applications, whereas Chapters 10 through 16 in Part II pertain to large-scale seismic phenomena and high-pressure laboratory rock physics tests. Part I constitutes 177 pages, compared to 380 pages in Part II. The last 55 pages of the text comprise Chapter 17, Conclusions. Conclusions are given for each chapter in numbered paragraphs. The...
