Presentation Abstract:
Dr. Bill Dershowitz will present an overview of the exciting new National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine Report “Characterization, Modeling, Monitoring, and Remediation of Fractured Rock.” This report provides a resource for engineers and geologists working in all aspects of fractured rock sites. The report presents a fracture-centric
approach that takes advantage of both new and well established technologies to better address the complexities of fractured rock characterization, design, and remediation.
