ISRM 2015 Congress Summary
Posted by

The ISRM 2015 Congress on Rock Mechanics External link in Montreal, Canada, was an eventful conference for Geomechanica. First, we had a full house for our short course on the use of the hybrid finite-discrete element method (FEMDEM) to simulate fracture processes in rocks. If you missed it, we will be presenting similar courses at the upcoming ARMA Rock Mechanics Symposium External link in San Francisco, USA, and at the ISRM Eurock Conference External link in Salzburg, Austria.

Next, Dr. Andrea Lisjak was awarded the prestigious Manuel Rocha Medal External link by the ISRM president, Prof. Xia-Ting Feng, for his excellent PhD thesis.  You can watch the award reception on YouTube. Andrea gave his Rocha Medal 2015 lecture during the first plenary session of the conference.
