The American Rock Mechanics Association invites you to its 50th US Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium to be held in Houston, Texas, USA on 26-29 June 2016. The 2016 program will focus on new and exciting advances in rock mechanics and geomechanics. In addition to being the central hub of the petroleum industry, Houston is one of the country’s most cosmopolitan and diverse cities that offers a great variety of activities and destinations for visitors. Houston’s deep cultural offerings include world- class fine arts museums and the Natural Science Museum as well as its Symphony, Grand Opera, and Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. The Houston Astros baseball team is in full swing in June; Galveston beckons with its beaches, bay, and bustling boardwalk; and NASA’s Houston Space Center is an icon that cannot be missed.

Technical tours and field trips are being planned. Sight- seeing tours will include various city landmarks, social activities and other attractions. Short courses and work- shops will be held immediately prior to the symposium and will be listed as they are confirmed. Details will be provided on the symposium web page as they become available.

Subject Areas

This symposium encompasses all aspects of rock mechanics, rock engineering, and geomechanics. We invite scientific and engineering papers in:

    Petroleum engineering
    Civil engineering,
    Geology and geophysics,
    Mining engineering, and
    Underground construction.

Further details will be provided on the symposium web page as they become available.

The focus of the symposium is on fundamental, practical and educational issues facing our profession. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Geomechanics for civil engineering—stability of slopes, pits, foundations, dams, underground storage
    Geomechanics for petroleum engineering—well design, injection, production and depletion of reservoirs, well stimulation, sand control
    Geomechanics/rock mechanics for mining engineering—rock excavation and breakage, dynamic loading
    Geomechanics and environmental risk—hazards and hazard mitigation, risk assessment and uncertainty
    Induced/triggered seismicity
    Waste disposal-produced water, CO2 sequestration
    Depletion-induced surface subsidence
    Interdisciplinary rock mechanics/geomechanics topics
    Rock mass, fault zone, fractured rock, weak rock, rock fabric characterization
    Stability and support of underground openings and structures
    Fracture mechanics—initiation, propagation and interaction, unconventional reservoirs
    In situ stress, pore pressure measurements, prediction
    Geomechanics in geothermal exploration and production
    Laboratory and field measurements, testing, equipment
    Coupled processes—geomechanics, fluid flow, heat, transport
    Numerical/analytical/constitutive modeling of rock and rock processes
    Computational advances and data analytics
    Geophysics and geology in geomechanics
    Rock heterogeneity across all length scales
