CNRIG2019 – primo bollettino e invio abstract

          

Carissimi Ricercatori,
siamo lieti di pubblicare il primo bollettino della settima edizione del Convegno Nazionale dei Ricercatori di Ingegneria Geotecnica (CNRIG2019), dal titolo La Ricerca Geotecnica per la Protezione e lo Sviluppo del Territorio, che si terrà dal 3 al 5 Luglio 2019 presso la sede di Lecco del Politecnico di Milano.

Vi invitiamo ad inviare entro il 7 dicembre 2018 i sommari degli articoli che intendete presentare, secondo le modalità indicate nel bollettino.

Il convegno sarà un’occasione di discussione e confronto sul ruolo della ricerca scientifica in campo geotecnico, sulle sue potenziali ricadute negli ambiti della mitigazione dei rischi naturali (protezione dell’esistente e dell’ambiente antropizzato) e della progettazione e protezione di strutture e infrastrutture (sviluppo e costruzione del nuovo) e sul suo contributo all’identificazione di soluzioni sostenibili sia dal punto di vista economico che ambientale.
Il convegno rappresenterà un’opportunità importante per individuare possibili future collaborazioni fra i diversi gruppi di ricerca, aperta sia a docenti e ricercatori sia a professionisti ed esperti di settore in genere, anche al di fuori degli ambiti tradizionali dell’Ingegneria Civile e Ambientale.

Case-study webinar by Prof. Carlo Viggiani

ISSMGE Technical Committee 306 ‘Geo-engineering Education’ is going to produce a series of case-study webinars for educational purposes, i.e. educational material to be used directly by geotechnical instructors for their undergraduate students.
The first webinar of the series was delivered by Prof. Carlo Viggiani, Emeritus Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at University of Naples “Federico II” (Italy). The title of the case-study webinar is “Porto Tolle test embankment – A full scale experiment on the consolidation of a thick clay layer”.
The webinar is now available online on the YouTube channel of TC 306:
The webinar is accompanied by an introductory interview to Prof. Carlo Viggiani conducted by Prof. Michele Calvello:
The slides of the presentation are also available for download:

Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment – 22-24 Gennaio 2019, Villars-sur-Ollon (Svizzera)

The second edition of the Winter School, dedicated to Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment, is coming up and the deadline to register via early bird registration is approaching (October 31st).

The Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment will be held on January 22nd-24th 2019, in Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland. Geomechanics, Environment and Energy are increasingly related and contemporary themes. The goal of the school is to provide participants with a deep understanding of selected topics in Geomechanics which are fundamental for applications related to Energy and the Environment. This Winter School is organized in the framework of the international journal “Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment”.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the following e-mail address: gete-school@epfl.ch

ALERT Geomaterials – Newsletter

Segnaliamo la possibilità di iscriversi alla newsletter di ALERT (Alliance of Laboratories in Europe for Education, Research and Technology) tramite l’apposito modulo del sito http://alertgeomaterials.eu/ .

The Alliance of Laboratories in Europe for Education, Research and Technology (ALERT) “Geomaterials” has been created in 1989 by Roberto Nova, Manuel Pastor, Ian Smith, Peter Vermeer, Olek Zienkiewicz and Félix Darve as a pioneering (at that time!) effort to develop a European School of Thinking in the field of the Mechanics of Geomaterials. The generic name “Geomaterials” is viewed as gathering together materials, whose mechanical behaviour depends on the pressure level, which can be dilatant under shearing and which are multiphase because of their porous structure. So, the “geomaterials” label brings together mainly soils, rocks and concrete. It has been obvious from the very beginning that there is a crucial need for a joint Graduate School in order to build firmly this European scientific group in the Mechanics of Geomaterials, in close link with the doctoral students.

The main areas of interest are
– micromechanics and constitutive modelling for geomaterials
– engineering, failure, strain localisation and instabilities
– large scale computations for geomaterials and geostructures
– integrity of geostructures and inverse analysis in geomechanics
– environmental geomechanics and durability of geomaterials

The core activity represents the annual meeting with ALERT Workshop and ALERT Doctoral School.

15 PhD vacancies (Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher positions) available at MATHEGRAM

MATHEGRAM is an MSCA Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the EU.

Granular materials, such as soils, agricultural seeds, metallic and ceramic powders, and pharmaceutical powders, are common in nature and have many industrial applications. They possess unique physical properties and a complicated flow behaviour. MATHEGRAM aims to improve our understanding of the thermomechanical behaviour of granular materials.

MATHEGRAM is now recruiting 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Each ESR will work at a beneficiary institute with a 36-month employment contract and will register as a PhD at a European University within the MATHEGRAM network or affiliated universities. Each ESR will also receive additional training at the network level and undergo secondments at academic and/or non-academic MATHEGRAM partners.
