Failure and Instability in Geomaterials and Geosystems- G. Buscarnera ,10-12 giugno, Roma La Sapienza

Nell’ambito del Corso di Dottorato in Ingegneria Strutturale e Geotecnica dell’Università di Roma La Sapienza, dal 10 al 12  giugno 2024, il prof. Giuseppe Buscarnera (Northwestern University- short-bio) terrà un corso sul tema Failure and Instability in Geomaterials and Geosystems. I dettagli del corso, tenuto in inglese e concepito per essere preferibilmente fruito in presenza (solo in subordine per via telematica) sono riportati in questo flyer e in questa pagina web dalla quale è possibile effettuare l’iscrizione, obbligatoria, al corso. Il programma dettagliato del corso è consultabile qui.




Giovedì 25 e venerdì 26 Gennaio 2024, presso l’Aula Magna dell’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II (P.le Tecchio 80), si terrà un Workshop su LIQUEFAZIONE DEI TERRENI INDOTTA DAI TERREMOTI organizzato da Stefania Lirer, Alessandro Flora e Francesco Silvestri. La partecipazione è libera ed il programma dell’evento è contenuto in questo flyer. Per informazioni e comunicazioni scrivere a federico.valtucci@unina.it

Constitutive and numerical modeling of geomaterials- Napoli Federico II – 26-30 giugno 2023

Da lunedì 26 a a venerdì 30 giugno 2023 (ore 0:00-12:00 e 15:00-17:00), nell’ambito della Scuola di Dottorato attiva presso l’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, in modalità mista, si svolgerà un corso dal titolo “Constitutive and numerical modeling of geomaterials“. Per maggiori informazioni e iscrizioni scrivere a ferdinando.marinelli@unina.it

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.

PhD and Postdoctoral research positions at EPFL, Switzerland

The Laboratory of Soil Mechanics at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is currently looking for two PhD students and a Postdoctoral researcher to conduct research in THM testing and modelling of geomaterials as part of research activities on nuclear waste storage.

The positions are open as of January 1st 2019, or upon agreement. More information on these positions can be found in the attached document. Interested candidates should submit their application to recruitment.lms@epfl.ch.

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.

Full Time Tenure Stream – Assistant Professor at York University, Toronto – Canada

The Department of Civil Engineering at the Lassonde School of Engineering invites applications from qualified individuals for a tenure-track professorial-stream position at the Assistant Professor level in Geotechnical Engineering to commence on July 1, 2019. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. All York University positions are subject to budgetary approval.

We are looking to appoint a highly motivated candidate who will contribute to the Department’s goal of establishing a state-of-the-art advanced experimental geotechnics facility, focused on laboratory and field testing of saturated, unsaturated and frozen soils, and other geomaterials, such as waste and mine tailings. Other focus areas of this position can include: geotechnical field instrumentation and monitoring for geohazards; environmental geotechnics; energy geotechnics; experimental geochemistry; transportation geotechnics; and mining geotechnics. The successful candidate is expected to play a key role in the teaching of undergraduate and graduate geotechnical engineering courses.

Posting End Date: November 30, 2018
