rimas pakalnis underground rock mechanics
Rimas PakalnisUnderground Rock Mechanics
  • B.A.Sc mining engineering, McGill University
  • M.Sc and Ph.D. at UBC.
  • Industry: consulting for six years as a professional engineer .
  • A note of interest is that he has set as an objective to audit and or conduct applied research at 10 mines each year. That means that in the 14 years that he has been teaching at UBC He has been to 140 mines, primarily in North America, but he also worked in Greece, South Africa, Hungary, and England.

oldrich hungr slope stability
Oldrich HungrSlope stability
  • UBC (1996) professor
  • Industry: engineering geologist for several years.
  • Developed Clara slope modeling program
  • Research: develop new techniques for slope stability analysis, modeling of landslide behavior.
  • New techniques of analysis must be developed and tested in the field in order to provide tools needed by the practitioners. The Geological Engineering Program at UBC plays an important role in this process.
