Abstract: Proceedings of the Thirteenth Symposium on Rock Mechanics held at the University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois, August 30 September 1, 1971. Sponsored by the U.S. National Committee for Rock Mechanics of the National Academy of SciencesNational Academy of Engineering and the University of Illinois. Stability of Rock Slopes contains many papers covering a broad range of relevant issues in rock mechanics. Topics include exploration and determination of shear strength properties, methods of stability analysis, design of slopes, performance of slopes, and the general session on rock mechanics. These proceedings will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers working with the stability of rock slopes.
