I colleghi dell’Università dell’Aquila hanno organizzato una serie di seminari in modalità telematica nell’ambito del corso di “Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering“, collocati tra le attività formative del Dottorato di Ricerca in Ingegneria Civile, Edile-Architettura e Ambientale.
I prossimi due eventi saranno:
- mercoledì 16 dicembre p.v. alle ore 9:20 seminario “Seismic Microzonation: a brief history and critical issues from recent experiences in Italy” tenuto dal prof. Alessandro Pagliaroli, docente presso l’Università di Chieti-Pescara «G. D’Annunzio». In allegato la locandina del seminario (link), a cui è possibile partecipare mediante la compilazione del seguente modulo: https://forms.gle/rpGeCrbuACyf4zS79
- lunedì 21 dicembre p.v. alle ore 16:00 seminario “Rocking Foundations for Bridges and the Failure of Hanshin Expressway in Kobe” tenuto dal prof. George Gazetas, professore emerito presso la National Technical University of Athens. In allegato la locandina del seminario (link), a cui è possibile partecipare mediante la compilazione del seguente modulo: https://forms.gle/d5b1BLXF8hL8rHoW6

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
