The following four short courses will be taught by Prof. Pinnaduwa Kulatilake in Tucson, Arizona in May 2016 as given below. Dr. Kulatilake was one of my professors at the University of Arizona during my geological engineering program. If you have always been meaning to learn some rock mechanics to add to your geotechnical skill set, these courses would be a very good option.
- 2-Day course on Rock Fracture Geometry Characterization and Network Modeling in 3-D Including Validations (May 14-15)
- 2-Day Course on Deterministic and Probabilistic Rock Slope Stability Analyses (May 16-17)
- 2-Day Course on Deterministic and Probabilistic Block Theory & Applications for Surface and Underground Rock Excavations (May 18-19)
- 1-Day Course on Measurement and Quantification of Joint Roughness, Normal & Shear Deformations, Peak Shear Strength, Aperture and Fluid Flow through Single Joints (May 20)
