The editorial team would like to express our sincere gratitude to all contributing authors and reviewers for their contributions, continuous support and comments.

In this issue:

Romziah Azit and Mohd Ashraf Mohamad Ismail evaluate the rock burst phenomenon at the Pahang-Selangor Raw Water Transfer Tunnel. Stress-strength method was used to analyse the tunnel behaviour under high overburden stress based on strength factor and tangential stress. Analysed results show that section with high overburden have high possibility of rock burst. Furthermore, it allows a reasonable prediction of the tunnel behaviours under different rock conditions, support systems and overburden stress which serves as a tool in the observational design and construction method for the deep tunnel excavation.
