Geomechanica is looking forward to presenting recent research and developments at the European Rock Mechanics Symposium (EUROCK 2015) , to be held in Salzburg, Austria, from October 7 to 10, 2015.
On Wednesday October 7, 2015, Dr. Andrea Lisjak will be offering a short course on the use of the hybrid finite-discrete element method (FEMDEM) to simulate fracture processes in rocks. The course will cover the theoretical principles of the numerical method and will offer the opportunity to gain valuable “hands-on” experience using Geomechanica’s recently-released Irazu FEMDEM software . We encourage petroleum, mining, geological and geotechnical engineers, graduate and post-graduate students with an interest in brittle rock behaviour to attend this short course. The registration fee is only 125 Euro .
On Thursday October 8, 2015, Andrea will be presenting Geomechanica’s latest research results on the numerical simulation of the excavation damaged zone (EDZ) in Opalinus Clay with application to underground nuclear waste repositories. The complete conference technical program can be found here .
We hope to see you in Salzburg! Please make sure to connect with Dr. Andrea Lisjak.
