3rd ISRM Young Scholars’ Symposium on Rock Mechanics

The 3rd ISRM International Young Scholars’ Symposium on Rock Mechanics was hold in November 8-10th, 2014, Xi’an, China. The Symposium was sponsored by International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) and Chinese Society for Rock Mechanics and Engineering(CSRME), and organized by the ISRM Commission on Education as an ISRM specialized conference 2014. University of Science and Technology Beijing and Xi'an University of Science and Technology are co-organizers of the symposium. 

This symposium aims to provide an ideal platform for idea and information exchange, knowledge and experience sharing. To develop and improve any subject requires continuity – through young researchers advancing the knowledge based on past information, and incorporating new techniques and new experiences. The meeting provides stimulus and encouragement to the Young Scholars so that they will tackle our outstanding rock mechanics and rock engineering problems with renewed vigor.

The contributions cover a wide range of topics, (i) field investigation and measurements; (ii) physical and mechanical properties of rocks; (iii) analysis and design methods for rock engineering; (iv) numerical and physical modeling;(v) multi-fields coupling analysis methods; (vi) rock slope, tunnel and foundation engineering; (vii) monitoring and control of rock pressure in underground engineering; (viii) dynamic rock mechanics and blasting; (ix) support and reinforcement techniques for geotechnical engineering; (x) prediction and control of artificial hazards with excavation in rock.

With the active responses from domestic and overseas’ young scholars, the symposium received 230 abstracts and 180 papers from different countries. 140 academic papers were selected in the proceedings ‘Transit Development in Rock Mechanics —Recognition, Thinking and Innovation’, and published by the British Publisher Taylor & Francis Group, A Balkema.

 

The cover of the Proceedings


The volume focus on the transitional development in rock mechanics research from the surface to underground mining, from shallow to a great depth of rock excavation, and the transition of knowledge, thinking and innovation from pioneers to the young generation.

In the opening ceremony,Prof. M. Cai, Prof. Jeon Seokwon from Seoul National University, Korea, Prof. Vladimir Makarov from the Far East Federal University, Russia, Dai Feng from Sichuan University and Dr. Zhao Jian from China University of Mining and Technology presented keynote lectures and reports. 40 oral presentations were given in four parallel sections. The scholars discussed and exchanged opinions on hot issues in their research fields. 

This symposium plays an important role in promoting the exchange of ideas and experiences and to share recent advances in rock mechanics and engineering among young scholars in the world, discussing on the education of rock mechanics in the future.
