Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment – 21-23 January 2020, Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland

The 3rd edition of the Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment will be held on January 21st -23rd 2020, 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 on 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.

Lectures will be given by internationally renowned experts in the field:
Eduardo Alonso (UPC Barcelona)
Coarse Granular Materials: From Particle Behaviour to Large-Scale Structures
Tomasz Hueckel (Duke University)
Multiphysics Degradation Processes, and Their Mitigation in Energy Geomechanics
Russell Ewy (Chevron ETC)
Shale Properties as a Function of Geological Burial and Compaction
Lyesse Laloui (EPF Lausanne)
Multiphysical Processes in Bentonite-Based Materials
Alessio Ferrari (EPF Lausanne)
Thermo-Mechanical Behaviour of Geomaterials: Experiments and Modelling
Jean Sulem (ENPC ParisTech)
Strain Localization and Instability in Geomechanics: Application to Seismic Slip

Lectures will be given on site during the first part of the day and extended breaks will be provided to review the course material, to go skiing, or to enjoy the wonderful landscape of the Swiss Alps in Villars-sur-Ollon. Late-afternoon gatherings are foreseen for lectures. Evening sessions will be devoted to presentations from the participants to share ideas with the experts.

Prof. Emmanuel Detournay (University of Minnesota, US National Academy of Engineering) has been awarded the 2020 EPFL Distinguished Lecture in Geomechanics for his significant contributions to the fields of hydraulic fracturing, drilling dynamics, and poroelasticity. The lecture, which is open to the public, will be held on January 20th, 2020 in Villars-sur-Ollon and is entitled: The Role of Scaling in Geomechanics.

Early bird registrations are now open until November 8th, 2019.

More information on the program, venue and registration can be found on the dedicated webpage (https://gete-school.epfl.ch)

Giornata di seminari su Geotecnica e Geomeccanica per l’Energia, Università di Milano, 12 febbraio 2019

I colleghi dell’Università Statale di Milano hanno organizzato una giornata di seminari sul tema “Geotecnica e Geomeccanica per l’Energia” che si terrà il 12 febbraio 2019.

Le applicazioni geotecniche/geomeccaniche energetiche sono oggetto di crescente interesse in diversi settori di ricerca e industria e sono fortemente interdisciplinari, coinvolgendo specialisti sia nel campo dell’Ingegneria che della Geologia.

I seminari spazieranno tra vari argomenti legati all’energia, dalla subsidenza in applicazioni Oil&Gas alle geo-strutture energetiche, dalle fondazioni offshore per l’energia rinnovabile alla fratturazione idraulica.
