Description: The present book tries to combine theoretical basis connected with processes of rocks and ground mining with the latest practical achievements within the range of technical equipment essential for implementation of the processes. Another problem they focused on is the issue of drilling tunnels and technical equipment for performing mining works with the use of non-excavation methods. The included materials are a unique attempt of synthetic approach to the issue of drilling tunnels and microtunnels. Subjects discussed in the book combine different specialities: presented and elaborated problems connected with rocks and ground mining as the base of realizing mining processes and issues devoted to construction and exploitation of mining machines and devices. The book constituting a compendium of information about rock mining should be a kind of handbook for students of mechanical, land building, sanitary engineering and natural environment protection departments. All the Authors of the book have been employed for many years at the Department of Mining, Dressing and Transport Machines of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics.
