Knowledge sharing seminar 2021
In connection with NoRSTRESS, we arranged a technical seminar on December 9th in 2021, with the topic "Knowledge sharing in rock stress measurements". Companies and organisations working with rock stress measurements shared their experience and knowledge with the industry. The content included history, case presentations, theories, methodology, equipment, and data interpretation.

The presentations are avaiable and linked from the presentation titles below.
