ARMA, San Francisco – June 2015

Dr. Bill Dershowitz, Dr. Paul La Pointe, and Mr. Aaron Fox attended the American Rock Mechanics Association national convention in San Francisco, California in June. With more than 300 scientists and technical professionals engaged in rock mechanics and rock engineering in attendance, this symposium offered an excellent opportunity to promote FracMan’s state of the art hydraulic fracture simulator and geomechanical capabilities. Dr. Dershowitz was lauded for the completion of his five-year term on the ARMA Board of Directors. Mr. Fox also presented a technical talk discussing the geological and hydrogeological characteristics of a brittle-ductile shear zone at the Äspö HRL in Oskarshamn, Sweden. The project utilized FracMan technologies in support of Sweden’s spent nuclear fuel repository program.
