Sobre o IX SBMR I About IX SBMR

O Comitê Brasileiro de Mecânica das Rochas (CBMR) tem a satisfação de convidar a comunidade geotécnica a participar do IX Simpósio Brasileiro de Mecânica das Rochas (SBMR).

Este evento representa o encontro nacional de maior importância para a apresentação e discussão de pesquisas científicas e tecnológicas, projetos e obras no âmbito da Mecânica das Rochas. Em 2021, a 9ª edição do SBMR acontecerá em Campinas, São Paulo, entre os dias 27 e 30 de abril de 2021, em paralelo ao XX Congresso Brasileiro de Mecânica dos Solos e Engenharia Geotécnica (COBRAMSEG 2020).

O evento tem por objetivo congregar os profissionais que fazem uso da mecânica das rochas em qualquer de suas aplicações, na engenharia e na geologia. Os principais eixos temáticos abordados no evento serão Mineração, Obras Civis e Petróleo, visando integrar o que há de mais atual e inovador na engenharia de rochas.

O tema desta edição do SBMR será “Inovação e Tecnologia na Engenharia de Rochas”, alinhado ao tema central do XX COBRAMSEG. Será a primeira edição do SBMR após o Congresso Internacional de Mecânica das Rochas e Engenharia de Rochas da ISRM ocorrido no Brasil e, portanto, uma excelente oportunidade para discutir o estado do conhecimento em engenharia de rochas à luz das mais recentes experiências internacionais.

Venha à Campinas participar deste encontro com a comunidade brasileira de rochas, e seja parte deste importante intercâmbio de conhecimento e experiências.

The 9th edition of the Brazilian Rock Mechanics Symposium will be held in April 27-30th 2021 in the city of Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil. The central theme of the event is “Innovation and Technology in Rock Engineering”. This event represents the most important Brazilian meeting for the presentation and discussion of scientific and technological research, projects and works in Rock Mechanics, and occurs in parallel to the 20th Brazilian Congress of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, 4th Brazilian Symposium of Young Geotechnical Engineers and the 6th South American Conference of Young Geotechnical Engineers. More than 1000 geotechnicians are expected at the event as a whole. Check out some of the highlights of SBMR programming:

  • The Pacheco Silva Conference, held every two years during the ABMS / CBMR national congresses to honor a professional of great importance to the national geotechnical development, will be given in 2020 by Professor Milton Kanji, one of the biggest Brazilian exponents of Rock Mechanics. Professor Kanji is the chairman of the ISRM Commission on Soft Rocks, having released a book on this topic.
  • The 9th SBMR will feature two short courses in its programming. The President of CBMR, Prof. Lineu Ayres da Silva will teach the course “Rock Blasting by Explosives in Urban and Underwater Areas”. The course “Fundamental Aspects to the Study of Rock Mechanics”, to be taught by Prof. Carlos Emmanuel Lautenschläger (CBMR Executive Secretary) will be aimed at students and young professionals.
  • As a tradition of CBMR in its most important national event, RockBowl will take place during SBMR 2020. The 5th national edition of Rockbowl will once again be sponsored by Geobrugg. This game will have a special edition in 2020, in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Brazilian Association of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, including questions about the history of the association!

The event will take place at EXPO DOM PEDRO, privileged locates in the city of Campinas, next to Dom Pedro I highway, with full accessibility. Campinas is ranked as the 10th wealthiest city in Brazil and main economic and cultural driver within the region, being remarkable for its life quality indicators and growth potential.

This will be the first edition of SBMR after the International Congress of Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (ISRM 2019), held in Brazil. It is an excellent opportunity to discuss the state of knowledge in rock engineering considering the latest international experiences. The Brazilian Rock Mechanics Committee is proud to invite you to participate in this venue.
