The main theme for RocDyn-4 is “Rock Dynamics: Progress and Prospect”.
The technical programme will cover all the aspects related to rock dynamics and engineering applications, including, but not limited to the following topics:
·Theory and experimental techniques
·Dynamic properties of rock material and rock mass
·Multi-scale and multi-physics
·Analytical and numerical methods.
·Sources and characterization of dynamic load
·Wave propagation in geological media
·Response and damage of underground structures
·Structural damage under repeated dynamic loads
·Dynamic rock support
·Penetration and Impact
·Dynamic issues in deep underground engineering
·Rock fragmentation and excavation
·Instrumentation and monitoring
·Engineering applications and case studies
Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts on all topics related to rock dynamics. Abstracts should be about 250 words long in English (but not more than 1 page), with a title, authors' names, affiliations, and email address for the corresponding author.
