7th International Symposium on In-Situ Rock Stressのご案内(講演申込締切:8月3日)

The Finnish National Group of ISRM and the Finnish Association of Civil Engineers RIL invite you to the 7th International Symposium on In-Situ Rock Stress RS2016, to be held 10–12 May 2016 in the beautiful city of Tampere, Finland.

The Symposium consists of interesting keynote presentations, parallel sessions and technical excursions. Post-symposium excursions will be arranged to Olkiluoto nuclear waste repository site (as first in the world!) and Pyhäsalmi mine (one of the oldest and deepest underground mines in Europe).

This symposium encompasses all aspects of rock stresses such as:

  • Rock stress measurements with different methods
  • Interpretation and analysis of results
  • Case studies (nuclear waste disposal, mining, civil engineering)
  • Regional stress fields
  • Seismicity and rock stress
  • New, innovated stress measurement methods – Rock structures and rock stress
  • Stress modeling

 Confirmed keynote speakers:

  • “Stress measurements in Finnish nuclear waste site”, Kimmo Kemppainen, Posiva Oy
  • “Fennoscandian stress field”, Ove Stephansson, Steph Rock Consulting AB
  • “Deep mine stresses, mining induced seismicity”, Stephen D. McKinnon, Queens University
  • “Development of hydraulic fracturing method”, Francois Cornet, Emeritus Professor

An integrated approach for the evaluation of measurements and inferences of in-situ stresses”, Ömer Aydan, University of Ryukyus
