Research Associate in Fractured Rock Hydrology
Imperial College London
Department of Earth Science and Engineering
Halliburton Drill Bits and Services has a position open for a Computational Mechanics Research and Development Engineer in the Woodlands, TX. As a leader in the oilfield services industry, Halliburton offers challenging opportunities for competent people who want to progress in our high performance organization. This engineer will be working as a member of a team comprised of highly motivated professionals from diverse backgrounds. The individual will be assigned to work on the rock removal process primarily through computational analysis of the cutter / rock interaction process.
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
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).
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.
