Postdoctoral Position in Hydraulic Fracture Mechanics Available at Masdar Institute in Abu Dhabi

Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in hydro-fracturing (fracking) is
available immediately at Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in Abu
Dhabi in United Arab Emirates. Masdar Institute is established in collaboration
with Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The research project focuses on
using advanced computational fracture and damage mechanics for simulating
hydro-fracturing of rocks in hydrocarbon fields. The candidate is expected to
have a PhD in the field of geomechanics, or civil engineering with solid
knowledge of hydraulic fracture mechanics and excellent theoretical and

The International Conference for Effective and Sustainable Hydraulic Fracturing

20-22 May 2013, The Hilton Brisbane, Australia

The inaugural HF2013 conference aims to advance the effectiveness of hydraulic fracturing for the energy producing and mining industries and beyond.

It is co-organised and sponsored by CSIRO, the University of Utah's Energy and Geoscience Institute, the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) and the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS).

Discontinuum numerical modelling with 3dec


As part of my PhD, I have to study the problem of the stability of the excavation face in tunnels driven in jointed/blocky rock masses. Therefore, I`m trying to build a 3d discontinuum model with 3dec. As I`m rather new to this code, I have a series of doubts (mainly concerning the way to reduce the size of the model and then the time needed for cutting the block geometry and running the calculation). 

I would be really glad if someone who knows the code could help me.

Thank you!
