3rd Int. Workshop on Rock Mechanics in Volcanic Environments - Final Bulletin|
The Final Bulletin of the 3rd International Workshop on Rock Mechanics and Geo-engineering in Volcanic Environments is now available and can be downloaded here.
The Workshop, an ISRM sponsored Specialised Conference, takes place in the Canary Islands, 31 May to 3 June 2010, and is organised by the “Sociedad Española de Mecánica de Rocas” (the Spanish National Group of the ISRM). This Workshop is complementary to those organized in 2002 and 2007 at Madeira and Azores, respectively.
This Workshop is included in a multidisciplinary Congress (Cities on Volcanoes 6 – Tenerife 2010), organized by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of Earth Interior. Volcanologists, geologists, disaster mitigation experts, and other specialised professions are expected to participate.
The topics to be discussed in this 3rd Workshop are related to geoengineering, mining, water resources and infrastructures in volcanic environment. In other words, laboratory and field characterisation of volcanic rock media, slope stability, tunnelling and excavation in volcanic areas will be studied and papers will provide a deeper insight in their knowledge
