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.

10th ALERT Olek Zienkiewicz Winterschool 2018, Bari, 5-9 November 2018

Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce that the 10th ALERT Olek Zienkiewicz Winterschool 2018,

Natural versus compacted clayey soils: from micro to macro behaviour and modelling,

will be held from the 5th to the 9th of November 2018 in Bari, Italy.

The Winterschool is organised by the Alliance of Laboratories in Europe for Education, Research and Technology (ALERT), the Politecnico di Bari and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. It will focus on the hydro-mechanics of clayey soils, either natural, or compacted, and provide knowledge about their genesis and consequent features at the micro to meso-scale, and about how their macro-response varies with the micro to meso-features.

The ALERT OZ Winterchool will be organised in 4 hours morning sessions and 4 hours afternoon sessions, from Monday the 5th of November, till Friday the 9th.

The lectures will be delivered by experienced lecturers from different universities: Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, University College London, Université Grenoble Alpes, Ecole de Ponts Paris Tech., Politecnico di Bari, Politecnico di Milano, Sapienza University of Rome, Purdue University.

The school attendance is open to PhD students and Young Doctors from all around the world.

We kindly invite you to further disseminate the event!

With best regards,

the 10th ALERT OZ Course Organising Committee
