Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS)

For engineers of all disciplines concerned with geomechanical principles.

The Australian Geomechanics Society has been dedicated to promoting and advancing engineering and geological principles since 1970. The society was built on the foundation of the National Committee of Soil Mechanics of the Institution of Engineers, Australia in 1953.

Geomechanics applies engineering and geological axioms to ground and ground water behaviour for use in civil, mining and environmental engineering and related engineering disciplines.

AGS activities and membership

The AGS is affiliated with international engineering and geotechnical societies. The society produces a newsletter and quarterly journal called Australian Geomechanics. The AGS also hosts workshops, symposia and events such as the ANZ Geomechanics conference.

Jointly sponsored by Engineers Australia and the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, the AGS is an excellent place for engineers and geomechanics professionals to network, share ideas and knowledge, and advocate for their disciplines.

With chapters across Australia and professional training courses for engineers, the Australian Geomechanics Society provides a rock-solid foundation for the career of driven engineers working in its related industries and practices.
