ISRM 2014


The ISRM Technical Program will be divided into 20 tracks. Papers will be divided among these technical program topics:

  • Application of geophysics in rock mechanics
  • Enabled rock mechanics: scope of augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence
  • Explosive free rock breakage techniques for rock excavation and drilling
  • Fracture mechanics and fracture propagation
  • Fractured rock and rock mass discontinuities
  • Ground freezing
  • High temperature geomechanics
  • In-situ stress measurement
  • Lab and in-situ rock characterization and modelling
  • Numerical, analytical, contitutive modelling or rock processes
  • Prediction and modelling
  • Remote sensing and seismicity
  • Reservoir geomechanics
  • Rock mechanics risk assessment
  • Rock physics models for enhanced hydrocarbon recovery
  • Role of uncertainties in rock engineering design
  • Slope stability and land slides
  • Stability and excavation support
  • Subsidence - prediction and mitigation of its impacts
  • Underground storage of petroleum, gas, CO2 , and nuclear waste disposal
