On behalf of the ISRM we would like to announce the following:

It is a pleasure to contact you and invite students of your country to join us at the RockBowl game!

We are organizing the second edition of RockBowl to occur during the International Congress on Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (ISRM 2019). It is a game of questions and answers, in which competing student teams are challenged to answer technical and non-technical questions about rock mechanics.

The prizes are:

  • $ 1.000,00 for each student of the winning team;
  • A drone for the best player.

Please spread the attached folder for the universities of your country and be sure that your nation is represented. We are contacting all National Groups of ISRM and inviting them to join us!

Please note that there is a limited number of teams on this competition. Registration opens at January 1st, 2019.

2018 Ingeokring Autumn Symposium: “A tribute to Peter Verhoef: Engineering Geology as an eye-opener for Civil Engineering” -UPDATE-

The 2018 Ingeokring-TU Delft symposium “Engineering Geology as an eye-opener to Civil Engineering” was fully dedicated to Peter Verhoef. It has been a great success with more than 100 participants. The speakers, all ex-students and/or ex-colleagues of Peter gave a vibrant homage to Peter before providing an excellent insight into the challenging projects to which they (have) contribute(d) to the success.

Peter has been instrumental to the education of many Delft trained engineering geologists. He is also considered as mentor by many of his ex-colleagues and has opened many eyes on the added value of engineering geology approach to most ground engineering projects.

The board of the Ingeokring offers Peter its best wishes for his retirement and is very glad to count him as its IAEG representative.

The board also thanks all participants to the symposium. By attending the symposium in mass, you proved that Peter’s impact on the development of engineering geology in the Netherlands is huge.

Dominique Ngan-Tillard & John Adrichem, organizers of the 2018 symposium.
