SANIRE has embarked on a new initiative to capture a series of video lectures, presented by SANIRE members and fellows who have made major contributions to the rock engineering fraternity. Our intention is to create two or three video lectures per year, which will be available for SANIRE members to view on the SANIRE website. This follows the example set by the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM). Currently there are nine online lectures available on the ISRM website and the most recent was presented by our very own Professor Dick Stacey (Professor Emeritus, University of the Witwatersrand) on 2015/04/16. SANIRE members are encouraged to suggest speakers and topics for future video lectures.
