Geomechanics and Tunnelling 05/15

Cover_geot_0515 2478Cover story: EUROCK 2015 & 64th Geomechanics Colloquium.

The Austrian Society for Geomechanics has the pleasure to host the European Rock Mechanics Conference for the third time in Salzburg. We combine EUROCK with the traditional Geomechanics Colloquium, thus guaranteeing a very interesting combination of theory and practice and hopefully inspiring discussions. Photo: DSI
