The Fourth International Conference on Rock Dynamics and Applications (RocDyn-4) will be held on 17-19 August 2022 in Xuzhou, China. This follows the successful series of RocDyn conferences since 2013 (RocDyn-1 in Switzerland, RocDyn-2 in China, RocDyn-3 in Norway) .
RocDyn-4 is a Specialized Conference under the International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (ISRM). The main theme is “Rock Dynamics: Progress and Prospect”, with the aim to take stock of the significant progress that rock dynamics has made since the formation of the ISRM Commission on Rock Dynamics in 2008 and the RocDyn-1 conference in 2013, examine new research areas and applications, and look to the future of rock dynamics.
Rock dynamics has wide applications in defense, civil engineering and infrastructure, energy and mining, and geo-hazards and the environment. It covers a wide scope of topics on the behavior of rock materials and rock mass under dynamic loads, ranging from characterization and the propagation of stress waves in geological media to dynamic response of rock and rock structures and dynamic rock support.
We invite all those involved in rock dynamic research and engineering to submit papers and join us in Xuzhou in 2022, to share, to exchange, to cooperate and to renew our friendship.
