The American Rock Mechanics Association and ARMA 2021 invite you to DFNE 2021,

the third International Conference on Discrete Fracture Network Engineering.


We are very excited to present the important advances that have occurred since the previous conference, as DFNE approaches are broadly applied in engineering, geology, and geophysics, providing practical solutions for rock mass characterization, geomechanics, and fluid flow and transport.

The Conference

DFNE 2021, will be held June 23-25

in conjunction with

ARMA 2021

at the

Woodlands Marriott Hotel and Conference Center

in Houston, Texas.
