Course on Rock Mechanics: Modern Advances & Challenges at IIT Dhanbad [Oct 21-25]: Registrations Open


Rock mechanics forms part of the much broader subject of Geomechanics, which is concerned with the mechanical responses of all geological materials, including soils. Rock mechanics, as applied in engineering geology, mining, petroleum, and civil engineering practice, is concerned with the application of the principles of engineering mechanics to the design of the rock structures generated by mining, drilling, reservoir production, or civil construction activity such as tunnels, mining shafts, underground excavations, open-pit mines, oil and gas wells, road cuts, waste repositories, and other structures built-in or of rock.

Understanding the stress, strain, and failure mechanisms of rocks and their response to earth stresses can lead to enormous economic benefits in all phases of petroleum reservoir development. Over the last few decades, rock mechanics has emerged as a critical technology capable of lowering financial risk in drilling and well completions, qualifying exploration and development opportunities, and improving hydrocarbon productivity.
