Basically, the rock and rock-like materials such as concrete and soil
are considered as geomaterials. Clays and some other materials which
can be related with engineering processes can, also,
be included in this category. Geomaterials are essential for life
since human construct storage and access/transport areas in rock and
mine for raw material. Essential material in mining
processes is rock or geomaterials. Drilling, blasting, excavation and
rock support processes rely on largely on physical and mechanical
properties of rock. Additionally, quarrying and machining
processes of natural stone depends in a greater extent to the physical
and mechanical properties of natural stone. In mineral processing
operations rock physical and mechanical properties of
rock are important parameters at various stages such as size reduction
or grinding. Soil and concrete are also important geomaterials.
Concrete when used together with the rock structures, as
support or lining element affects the behavior of the system
constructed. The response of soil depending on the engineering
attempts is a broad research and application area. Mechanical
excavation in mining and tunneling, drilling, blasting, sawing,
abrasive water jet cutting, other micromachining methods and grinding
are the potential engineering efforts in geomaterials. Aim of
this journal is, thus, to publish research on geomaterials. Types of
work which will be accepted are summarized below.
Characterization of geomaterials: Experimental methods in determining
physical and mechanical parameters of greomaterials.
Dampening and permeability properties: Seismic wave dampening
characteristics, fluid, gas and radiation flow or emitting behavior of
Modeling the behavior of geomaterials: results of the efforts
behavior or response of geomaterials using statistical, mathematical
and numerical methods.
Monitoring behavior: Methods and equipment to monitor behavior of geomaterials.
Results of the experimental and industrial applications: Applications
focused on behavior of geomaterials. Blasting performance: Rock
response to blasting, fragmentation quality, seismic
loading, and effects of rock structural elements in wave transmission.
Size reduction: Characteristics and response to grinding effects,
mechanism of processes. Soil behavior: Characteristics
and response of soil related with the engineering processes. Wear and
cutting behavior of geomaterials: The mechanism in drilling, cutting
and sawing processes need extended work to explain
the response of geomaterials to mechanical effect. Drilling,
mechanical excavation, sawing and abrasive water jet machining are in
the primary concern in that sense.
This journal is intended to be open for papers accepted for rock and
soil mechanics journals (for example Int, J, of Rock Mechanics) and
materials journals (J. of Materials Processing
Technology). The journals on materials characterization and on related
issues are not open to geomaterials. Rock and soil mechanics journals,
on the other hand, are generally, weak in
publishing papers condensed on the issues related mainly on materials
properties of geomaterials. Also, rock, concrete and soil are
considered as a special material group which may attract a
broader audience perspective. Also, the papers related with both
characterization and mechanical applications (drilling, sawing etc)
can be accepted. Proposed editorial board: Not condensed
on currently Journal audience: Academics and professionals from mining
engineering, geology, civil engineering, geophysics. Competing
journals: Materials and Design, Journal of Materials
Processing Technology, Wear, Int. Journal of Rock Mechanics, Rock
Mechanics, Tunneling and Underground Spaces.
