International Webinar on Rock Mechanics – March-April 2021

Some Young Members of different ISRM National Groups (France, Italy, Paraguay, and Spain) are organizing a series of international webinars on rock mechanics, with the aim of involving young researchers in different educational activities. They are contacting other ISRM National Groups to involve more countries in this initiative.

A tentative program has been created, and some online lectures have already been scheduled for the upcoming months. The flyer of the first programmed webinar, which is organized by the Young Members’ Group (Groupe de travail CFMR-Jeunes) of the ISRM French National Group is attached here.

The first session will take place on 11 March and you can register for free. It will include two contributions:
– Thermo-hydro-mechanical behavior of clay-rock in deep radioactive waste repositories
Philipp Braun (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech)
– Site investigation and design of protective structures in an unstable area in the city of Majukavo-Mayotte-France
Mohammed Annakib (Université de Rennes)

Upcoming dates:
01 April 2021
Relating physical and mechanical properties to temperature induced damage in carbonate rocks
Federico Vagnon (Università di Torino)

Third international symposium on Geotechnical Engineering for the Preservation of Monuments and Historic Sites – Napoli 22-24 giugno 2022 – Call for papers

Il 3rd International Symposium on Geotechnical Engineering for the Preservation of Monuments and Historic Sites, organizzato dall’AGI e dal TC 301 dell’ISSMGE, si terrà a Napoli, dal 22 al 24 giugno 2022.

L’evento si rivolge non solo agli ingegneri geotecnici ma anche agli specialisti di tutte le discipline coinvolte nella salvaguardia e nella conservazione dei monumenti e dei siti storici. Le tematiche che il convegno si propone di affrontare sono descritte nella locandina allegata, e spaziano dai principi generali della conservazione dei monumenti, alle indagini e al monitoraggio di casi esemplari, agli effetti dello sviluppo urbano e degli eventi naturali sul patrimonio costruito, alle tecniche di mitigazione del rischio.

Il convegno inoltre ospiterà la terza Kerisel Lecture, dedicata dalla ISSMGE al pioniere dell’applicazione dell’ingegneria geotecnica alla conservazione dei monumenti.

La call for papers è aperta e i sommari vanno sottoposti attraverso il sito del convegno, sul quale saranno rese disponibili tutte le ulteriori informazioni.
