The Oil and Gas Authority have recently collaborated with Rockfield to deliver a training course for 40 industry subsurface professionals on the mechanical properties of geo-materials for the UKCS petroleum and carbon storage industries. To complement this training course Rockfield are releasing a free-to-access, UKCS constitutive materials database, and a macro-enabled spreadsheet. This tool allows users to visualise the elastic and plastic relationships of material models in 2D and 3D.

The materials database and spreadsheet can be accessed via the Rockfield website here.
