ISRM Glossary

The ISRM Glossary assembles a list of approximately 1000 Rock Mechanics terms translated by the ISRM National Groups from an original list in English into their national languages. In the initial version the glossary is available in the following languages: Chinese, English, Finnish, French, German, Korean, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Persian, Portuguese (European and Brazilian versions), Russian, Slovenian, Spanish and Turkish. Translation into several other languages is still going on and they will be added to the glossary in the future. To search, choose the original language and insert the term. If a correspondence is found, click on the adequate term to see its translation in the available languages.

If you have any suggestions please contact the ISRM Secretariat.
