The ISRM Young Members’ Seminar (YMS) Series is a new ISRM Young Members Group initiative. It consists of a series of virtual events with the goal of providing a global platform for ISRM young members to share knowledge, experiences, and ideas. More details on the YMS are available on this page.

After four very successful editions, the fifth ISRM Young Members’ Seminar will take place on 27 May at 6 P.M. GMT with two speakers, from Canada and USA:

  • Directional and 3D-Confinement-Dependent Fracturing, Strength and Dilation Mobilization in Brittle Rocks - Masoud Rahjoo (AECOM - Canada)
  • Stochastic Discrete Element Modeling for Pillar Strength Determination: a First Step in a Risk-Based Pillar Design Approach - Juan José Monsalve (Virginia Tech University - USA)

You can join using the Zoom link created for each Seminar and you can participate in the question and answers period. The Seminars will also be live-streamed to the ISRM YM's YouTube channel, where they will be stored. Click here to download the flyer
