9th WBI-International Shortcourse: 5-days on ADVANCED ROCK ENGINEERING (Rock Mechanics, Stability and Design of Tunnels and Slopes)

April 24 to 28, 2013

WBI-Center, Weinheim (Germany)

English (See below for German and Spanish)

After 8 successful events in the past 8 years, we will organize our shortcourse in 2013 again.

During these days, acknowledged experts in their field will

-    share their knowledge with you,
-    illustrate the basics of rock mechanics to you,
-    demonstrate the application of the WBI-developed finite element computer codes for static and hydraulic analyses on the basis of case histories,
-    present interesting case studies for tunneling, slope design and construction in rock.

There will be plenty of room for questions and discussion.

Because of the large interest from non-German-speaking countries, we will again hold the shortcourse in the English language.
