Laloui’s Research Group Biogeotechnics Webinar (15 September 2020)

Laloui’s Research Group of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL) invites you to the Biogeotechnics Webinar: 5 Little Known Keys For Successful Biogeotechnical Practice, with Prof. Lyesse LalouiDr Dimitrios Terzis, Maren Katterbach, and Dr Alexandra Clarà Saracho

This webinar will present an alternative approach to material design and delivery using natural organic systems present within the soil to precipitate carbonate minerals that act as soil-binding agents. Technical discoveries and developments of bio-cemented soils will be presented, with a particular focus on how this technology can be integrated into mainstream geotechnical practice. Through the following points, under the scope of the ERC-funded BIOGEOS project, this talk will highlight to researchers and practitioners alike, the opportunities of a technology that will shape the future of low carbon soil remediation and stabilization practices:

• Applications & performance of bio-cemented soils
• Breaking the nitrogen barrier in biotic calcification
• Economics & environmental impact
• Equipment & monitoring
• Industrial practice: guidelines for successful integration

Date: 15 September 2020
Time: 13:30 CET / 07h30 ET / 19h30 Beijing Time
Place: Zoom

Post-doc position in energy geotechnics at Aarhus University (Denmark)

Applications are welcome for a 1.5-year post-doc position (with extension opportunities) to investigate the cyclic behaviour of a geomembrane energy storage system. The successful candidate will investigate the cyclic behaviour of energy storage technology recently developed in Denmark.

Candidates should possess a PhD degree in Civil/Geotechnical Engineering or related areas, proven experience in numerical modelling, preferably including soil-structure interaction problems and cyclic loading, and excellent knowledge of soil mechanics and foundation engineering. Acquaintance with the finite element software ABAQUS® is appreciated (but not mandatory).

A more detailed description of the project can be found in the attached pdf.

The project will be conducted in a team with Professor Lars Vabbersgaard Andersen, Professor (Docent) Kenny Kataoka Sørensen and Assistant Professor Hans Henning Stutz. For more information about this vacancy, please contact Hans Henning Stutz (Main supervisor) hhs@eng.au.dk

The position will be available until it is filled.

Intensive Course on Energy Geostructures: Analysis and Design – 3rd Edition, EPFL, November 2020

The third edition of the 3-day intensive course for practitioners and scientists entitled “Energy geostructures: analysis and design” will be held at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, from November 2 to 4, 2020. The short-course aims to provide attendees with a sound theoretical understanding of the problems addressed as well as with practical and effective tools to address the considered subjects.
By attending this training, you will: (i) develop your understanding of the behaviour and performance of energy geostructures, such as energy piles, energy barrettes, energy walls and energy tunnels; (ii) increase your knowledge about the energy, geotechnical and structural analysis of energy geostructures with practical application exercises, including analytical and numerical simulation exercises and (iii) learn how to design energy geostructures following current standards through appropriate procedures.

The course has been designed with civil engineers in mind, but targets energy engineers, architects, urban project managers and geologists as well.
The number of participants for this intensive course is limited. The available spots are being filled on a first come first served basis. More information about the course can be found on its dedicated website.

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)
