“2nd International Workshop on Geomechanics and Energy” Brussels (Belgium) on 3-5 November 2015, under the auspices of EAGE

After the success of the first edition, held in Lausanne in November 2013, the goal of this second edition is to provide a forum for scientists and practicing engineers alike to present the most recent contributions of geomechanics to various fields of energy. The areas of interest are related to geomechanical applications in the subsurface extraction of energy and the storage of waste, including the different levels of investigations: in-situ investigation, laboratory experiment, constitutive modelling and numerical modelling. Specific topics of interest include, but not limited to: (i) hydrocarbon exploration and production, (ii) underground storage, and (iii) geothermal energy.

Nuevo libro “Rock Mechanics Based on an Anisotropic Jointed Rock Model (AJRM)” – Prof. Wittke

We are pleased to announce that the new book "Rock Mechanics Based on an Anisotropic Jointed Rock Model (AJRM)" by Prof. Wittke has been published.

This book focuses on the fundamentals of rock mechanics as a basis for the safe and economical design and construction of tunnels, dam foundations and slopes in jointed and anisotropic rock.

If you are interested, you can order it by using attached Fax Order Form.

In this context we would very much like to draw your attention to our Shortcourse in September 2014. As a participant of the Shortcourse, you will receive an author discount of 40 % on the book "AJRM", which will be used as teaching material in the course.
