The International Conference for Effective and Sustainable Hydraulic Fracturing

20-22 May 2013, The Hilton Brisbane, Australia

http://hfconference2013.hydrofrac.wikispaces.net/home

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).

Postdoctoral Fellowship studying mechanics of hydraulic fracturing for stimulation of hot fractured rock geothermal reservoirs

CSIRO Petroleum in Melbourne, Australia, welcomes applications to a Postdoctoral Fellowship
in hydraulic fracture stimulation mechanics. The successful candidate
will have a background in applied mechanics and numerical methods with
an interest in verifying numerical calculations by experiment.  The
research results will be applied to stimulation of hot fractured rock
geothermal reservoirs.

"Crack" versus "Fracture"

 It seems that within the field of fracture mechanics, some authors use "fracture" to refer to the mechanism of creating new surfaces within a body by breaking the material bonds and reserve the word "crack" for the sharp-tipped discontinuity that results from fracture of a brittle material. But it does not appear that this distinction is followed consistently throughout the literature, and perhaps different research areas within the fracture mechanics field use the two words in different ways.

Post doctoral position in geomechanics at CSIRO Petroleum, Melbourne, Australia

https://recruitment.csiro.au/asp/job_details.asp?RefNo=2007%2F1216

The post doctoral fellow will be engaged in research on the mechanics of hydraulic fracturing of rock. The primary aim of this project is to investigate, using a novel approach for experimentation spanning laboratory and field scales, the effect of fracture size on the energy required for fracture extension in rock.
