Postdoctoral Research Associate in Offshore Foundation Systems at Durham University (UK)

The Department of Engineering at Durham University (UK) is advertising a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Offshore Foundation Systems position. The postdoctoral researcher will work on a British Council funded project entitled “Floating hybrid renewable energy systems in Turkey”. This project aims to develop a design for hybrid floating wind turbine solar energy foundation systems. The project involves collaboration with the Middle East Technical University and industry partners in Turkey. The postdoctoral researcher will carry out advanced numerical simulations to predict the response of the foundations and the anchorage systems.

The employment contract will be up to 16/02/2023 (about 23 months). The deadline for the application is 22 April 2021. More details can be found at:

vEGU 2021 – call for abstracts – session NH8.4 on vegetation effects on slope stability and climate-induced geohazards

The NH8.4 session of the EGU General Assembly 2021 (vEGU, April 2021) is entitled ” Vegetation as nature-based solution for mitigating climate induced geo-hazards and associated consequences along slopes and streambanks” and is coordinated by Vittoria Capobianco (Norwegian Geotechnical Institute – NGI), Sabatino Cuomo (University of Salerno), Dominika Krzeminska (Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research – NIBIO) and Anders Solheim (Norwegian Geotechnical Institute – NGI).

Contributions documenting, both through numerical or experimental studies, how vegetation can be beneficial in slope stability and plant-soil-atmosphere interaction in the unsaturated zone are welcome.

Specific topics and research questions related to this session are:

• How the plant-soil-atmosphere interaction affects the unsaturated zone and thus the slope stability?
• Measuring and quantifying the effects of vegetation as NBS for mitigating climate induced geo-hazards and associated consequences at or near instable slopes and along stream banks – case studies at full scale or laboratory scale
• How to ensure interdisciplinary interaction for sustainability and mutual synergies for studies containing vegetation as NBS for mitigating climate induced geo-hazards and associated consequences at or near instable slopes and along stream banks.

Further information about the session can be found here: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/session/38969

Interested participants are welcome to submit an abstract within 20 January 2021, which will be followed by an online presentation to be given during the virtual session.

Additional info about abstract submission can be found at: https://egu21.eu/abstracts_and_programme/how_to_submit_an_abstract.html

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.

15th BW – ICOLD, Politecnico di Milano, 9-11 settembre 2019

Il Comitato Tecnico su Computational Aspects of Analysis and Design of Dams dell’International Commission on Large Dams – ICOLD quest’anno organizza il 15th Benchmark Workshop on Numerical Analysis of Dams presso il Politecnico di Milano, il 9-11 Settembre (www.eko.polimi.it/index.php/icold-bw2019).

In questa edizione sono stati formulati tre temi, di cui due potrebbero meritare l’attenzione della nostra comunità geotecnica. Si tratta dell’analisi sismica della Diga del Menta, proposta da Università di Cassino e del Lazio Meridionale, Università di Perugia e SoRiCal Spa (Tema B), e dell’analisi di pre-collasso e collasso di un argine, proposta da Politecnico di Milano, TU-Delft e Stowa-NL (Tema C). Oltre alla partecipazione ai temi proposti, è aperta anche la possibilità di presentare un proprio caso studio.
L’evento prevede anche una giornata di visite tecniche e un breve corso sull’analisi della risposta sismica non lineare di dighe in calcestruzzo, tenuto dal Prof. Chopra, UC Berkeley.

L’incontro rappresenta un’occasione di confronto fra ricercatori e professionisti che hanno interesse nel campo dell’analisi numerica per il progetto e la verifica delle dighe.
Vi invitiamo quindi a partecipare e a valorizzare anche in questa occasione il contributo della geotecnica italiana.

Donatella Sterpi, per il Local Organizing Committee
