Share Share

Professor Eduardo Alonso delivered the 30th Manuel Rocha Lecture last November 11th 2013, in Lisbon, entitled:


"Fracture Mechanics and Rockfill Dams"


The Portuguese Geotechnical Society and the Geotechnical Association of Alumni of the New University of Lisbon have organized each year, since 1984, the Manuel Rocha Memorial Lecture. This lecture series commemorates the distinguished professional career of Manuel Rocha, firstly by its own contributions as a scholar and a s consultant engineer, and secondly through the impact of the National Laboratory of Civil Engineer, which he created. He was one of the founders of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISMR), its second president (1966-1970) and the chairman of the first congress of the ISRM (Lisbon, 1966).
Manuel Rocha Lectures are given annually, in general, at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in Lisbon, by academics and researchers judged to be the leaders in their chosen field. The lectures are subsequently published as papers in the Portuguese Journal of Geotechnics ("Revista Geotecnia" and "Soils & Rocks").
