This book attempts to give an introduction to the practice and theory of rock bolting in mining and tunnelling. It provides rules and guidelines for the treatment of bolt elements. The text is divided into bolt groups: bolt group 1 - immediate support (working support); bolt group 2 - permanent support; bolt group 3 - combined immediate and permanent support; bolt group 4 - shuttering bolts; bolt group 5 - yielding bolts. The pretensioning of bolts is dealt with together with the determination of bolt lengths and bolt patterns. The background principles for rock support with bolts are recalled, and the last chapter deals with special bolt systems (truss bolting, glass fibre bolting, fore-poling plastic expansion shells and resin-grouted rock bolts of fibre-glass).
