    Special Issue on Geological Mechanics Research


    Geological mechanics is a discipline that studies the laws of crustal structure and crustal movement with the principle of mechanics. In the aspect of mineral geological mechanics and environmental geology, engineering geology, earthquake geology, petroleum geology and regional stability research, especially for oil, coal, mineral exploration and geological disaster prediction, geological mechanics has played an important role. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of advances in geological mechanics.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring geological mechanics research. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Tectonic system of geological mechanics
    • Geological mechanics model
    • Continental dynamics
    • Geotechnical mechanics
    • Geological hazard monitoring and prediction
    • Dynamic diagenesis and mineralization
    • Crustal movement and crustal stability
    • Petroleum resources assessment

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Geological Mechanics Research” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
