Prof. Manuel Romana passed away
2020-10-16


On 26 March 2020, our colleague Prof. Manuel Romana Ruiz has passed away.

Throughout his long professional career, Professor Romana became one of the greatest exponents of Rock Mechanics both in Spain and internationally. He developed the so-called Slope Mass Rating (SMR), one of the most used geomechanical classifications focusing slope stability.

He was elected president of the the Spanish National Group of the ISRM (SEMR) in 1980 and was in office for more than 20 years.

The ISRM and the rock mechanics community deeply regret his loss.
