ALERT Workshop (27-29 September 2021) and School (30 September – 2 October 2021)

ALERT Geomaterials Workshop 27th September to 29th September
ALERT Doctoral School 30th September to 2nd October
Aussois, France (or online)

The preliminary programme of the ALERT Doctoral School 2021 (link) in Aussois/online is now available. Be aware that changes can still occur. The programme of the Workshop (link) will follow soon.

Information and the link to the registration script can be found here.

As sanitary conditions are improving, it was decided to propose you two alternatives for your registration to the workshop and doctoral school: either you can come and participate in Aussois, or you can attend those remotely. Don’t worry, your choice can always be modified later on, as the sanitary conditions may change. As a reminder, the restrictions for entering France will depend on your country of departure and your vaccination status.

12th ALERT Olek Zienkiewicz course – 18-20 May 2021 (+ 13 & 20 April), online

The 12th ALERT Olek Zienkiewicz course 2021: “Looking into the rhizosphere: the interface between plant science and soil mechanics” will be held online on 18-20 May 2021. It is organised in five sessions. The course will be preceded by preparatory lectures organised in four sessions over two days, 13 and 20 April 2021.

The course is organised by the Alliance of Laboratories in Europe for Education, Research and Technology (ALERT), the University of Strathclyde (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Department of Geotechnical Engineering & Geosciences), CIMNE (Geomechanics Group) and TERRE Network.

The course is coordinated by Alessandro Tarantino (University of Strathclyde) and Enrique Romero (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya).

The course is free of charge for participants affiliated to institutions member of ALERT Geomaterials. The web platform to register is not yet opened but registrations can already be made by email (see attachment).

ALERT Geomaterials Workshop 2020 – Registration for the Invited Lecture, PhD Prize and E-School

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and after careful consideration, the Bureau and the BoD have decided to cancel the ALERT workshop in 2020 (it will take place in 2021 from September 27 to September 29), but the Doctoral School, the PhD Prize as well as the Invited Lecture will take place online. 

The doctoral E-School on “Point based numerical methods in geomechanics” is organized by Pr. Manolo Pastor and Pr. Wei Wu. It will take place remotely every morning from September 28th to October 1st.

The PhD prize and the Invited Lecture will take place remotely on Tuesday September 29th, from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (CET) for the ALERT PhD prize 2020 and from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm (CET) for the Invited lecturer, Pr. Chris Spiers.

All these events are free of charge, but the registration is mandatory (deadline for the registration is the September 18th). Please read the hints in the Registration form: after filling the form and pressing the button “Register”, you will get an email with the registration data.

Deadline: 18th September 2020

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
