Australian Geomechanics Society

The Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS) was founded in 1970. Its origins lie in the National Committee of Soil Mechanics of the Institution of Engineers, Australia established in 1953 and the call for a corresponding society in rock mechanics. In 1973 the society was expanded to include the third discipline of engineering geology and has remained substantially unchanged since that date.
