Vi segnaliamo un webinar organizzato da GEER (Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance Association Turning Disaster into Knowledge – Sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation) sulle conseguenze dell’esplosione di Agosto 2020 al Porto di Beirut. Il webinar è gratuito e si terrà il 28 aprile, in orario serale per l’Italia.
Durante il webinar si mostreranno le conseguenze strutturali e geotecniche dell’esplosione e si farà vedere come poter utilizzare dati satellitari e tecnologie innovative in scenari post-disastro.

Vi segnaliamo il numero speciale della rivista open-access Geosciences di MDPI sul tema “Modellazione numerica nell’ingegneria geotecnica“:
di cui sono Guest Editors Valentina Lentini, Maria Rossella Massimino, Maurizio Ziccarelli e Dimitris Pitilakis.
Sarà possibile sottoporre gli articoli fino al 15 dicembre 2020 e ciascun lavoro accettato sarà pubblicato indipendentemente dalla tempistica degli altri articoli del volume speciale.
Winter School “From research to practise in geotechnical engineering” – 12–17 January 2020, Ascona (Switzerland)
The Winter School “From research to practise in geotechnical engineering”, coordinated by Prof. I. Anastasopoulos, will take place in Ascona (Switzerland) from 12 to 17 January 2020.
With the ultimate goal of developing innovative mitigation techniques, the international geotechnical engineering community has made substantial efforts to gain deeper insights on geotechnical hazards. For the state of practice to advance, academics need to join forces with practitioners.
The Winter School aims to bring these two groups together, to question the status quo, and to propose out‐of‐the‐box solutions. The program will combine:
a) Keynote lectures by international experts from the academia and the industry;
b) Seminars on state‐of‐the‐art numerical and physical modelling techniques;
c) Presentations by the participants;
d) Panel sessions, where the participants will have a “debate” with industry and academia experts on the applicability of their ideas;
e) Special session on start‐ups, on the process of product development, from initial conception to founding of a new company.

An opportunity has arisen for a Research Associate to work on experimental geotechnical laboratory and field studies carried out in conjunction with the ALPACA Joint Industry Project. The latter is a major research project that is being advanced in association with University of Oxford, funded by EPSRC and Industry. Professor R J Jardine is the Principal Investigator, with Dr Stavroula Kontoe as Co-Investigator. The project is directed towards the cost-effective design of foundations for offshore wind-turbines, especially those for chalk dominated sites. This is a fixed term appointment that will commence from December 2018 or later and extend up to end of February 2020.
Closing date: 28 October 2018
