Ehsan Ghazvinian

Geomechanics Engineer

Dr. Ghazvinian specializes in geomechanics of brittle rocks. He offers expertise in continuum and discontinuum modeling of underground excavations prone to brittle fracturing and spalling. He has experience in application of numerical models to sequencing life of mine simulations and predicting potential seismic hazards in deep underground excavations.

Dr. Ghazvinian also has expertise in state-of-the-art laboratory testing and data interpretation. His experience in working with rock mechanics laboratories globally has led him to becoming a working group member for preparing the ISRM Suggested Method for laboratory determination of crack initiation and critical damage thresholds for brittle rocks.
