Title: Micromechanics of cracking of clay subjected to air drying and/or gas breakthrough
Duration: 3 years
Start date: from 01/10/2020 to 31/12/2020
Stipend: £1270/month
Eligibility: Applications from UK/EU applicants only, First Class Honours (or equivalent)
Where: Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland
Supervisors: Dr Matteo Pedrotti (https://www.strath.ac.uk/staff/pedrottimatteomr/) and Professor Alessandro Tarantino (https://www.strath.ac.uk/staff/tarantinoalessandroprof/)
Contact: matteo.pedrotti@strath.ac.uk

Project summary
This 3-year PhD at the University of Strathclyde will focus on investigating the mechanisms at the micro/particle scale underpinning the process of crack formation in clay associated with air drying and/or exposure of the clay interface to gas at high pressure.
The research will mainly be experimentally-based and the PhD candidate will make use of state of the art technologies for the investigation of the clay microstructure including X-Ray Computed Tomography, Environmental Scanning Microscopy, and Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry.
Despite 100 years of research on the macro-mechanical behaviour of clay, we are still largely ignoring underlying mechanisms at the particle scale. Clay micromechanics involves the understanding of the configuration of elements (particles) and the forces controlling the kinematics of such elements. Clay micromechanics (including the evolution of particle configuration in clays when subjected to mechanical loading) has rarely been investigated explicitly and is a young and rapidly growing discipline in the field of soil mechanics.
Besides joining a vibrant geotechnical community at Strathclyde, the candidate will join the International Research Centre For Clay Micromechanics (https://www.irccm.net ) which will provide the opportunity for international collaborations and to spend a period abroad in one of the partner universities (i.e. Chalmers University of Technology – Sweden, University of Twente – The Netherlands, Université Grenoble Alpes – France, University of Brasilia – Brazil, Politecnico di Bari – Italy, Technical University of Denmark – Denmark) .
Industrial contacts will be mainly focused, but not only, towards the Carbon Storage and Sequestration sector.

Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment – 22-24 Gennaio 2019, Villars-sur-Ollon (Svizzera)

The second edition of the Winter School, dedicated to Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment, is coming up and the deadline to register via early bird registration is approaching (October 31st).

The Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment will be held on January 22nd-24th 2019, 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 of 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”.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the following e-mail address: gete-school@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.

15 PhD vacancies (Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher positions) available at MATHEGRAM

MATHEGRAM is an MSCA Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the EU.

Granular materials, such as soils, agricultural seeds, metallic and ceramic powders, and pharmaceutical powders, are common in nature and have many industrial applications. They possess unique physical properties and a complicated flow behaviour. MATHEGRAM aims to improve our understanding of the thermomechanical behaviour of granular materials.

MATHEGRAM is now recruiting 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Each ESR will work at a beneficiary institute with a 36-month employment contract and will register as a PhD at a European University within the MATHEGRAM network or affiliated universities. Each ESR will also receive additional training at the network level and undergo secondments at academic and/or non-academic MATHEGRAM partners.
