Q&A with Dr. Evert Hoek: Developments in Rock Engineering from 1958 to 2020

To mark our 25th anniversary as a company, we introduced the Rocscience International Conference, a biennial technical conference with the first event taking place in April 2021. Over 400 engineers from all over the world attended the three-day conference which included paper presentations, panel discussions, and most notably, the Lifetime Achievement Medal awarded to Dr. Evert Hoek.

During this session, Dr. Hoek delivered a fantastic presentation on “Developments in rock engineering from 1958 to 2020.” It was followed by a Q&A period where he answered questions asked by the conference attendees. Click below to read Dr. Hoek's answers to all the questions from the session.
