Advances in Laboratory Testing and Modelling of Soils and by Alessio Ferrari,Lyesse Laloui

By Alessio Ferrari,Lyesse Laloui

In this spirit, the ATMSS foreign Workshop “Advances in Laboratory trying out & Modelling of Soils and Shales” (Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland; 18-20 January 2017) has been prepared to advertise the alternate of rules, event and cutting-edge between significant specialists energetic within the box of experimental checking out and modelling of soils and shales. The Workshop has been geared up below the auspices of the Technical Committees TC-101 “Laboratory Testing”, TC-106 “Unsaturated Soils” and TC-308 “Energy Geotechnics” of the foreign Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.

This quantity includes the invited keynote and have lectures, in addition to the papers which have been provided on the Workshop. the subjects of the lectures and papers hide a variety of theoretical and experimental examine, together with unsaturated behaviour of soils and shales, multiphysical checking out of geomaterials, hydro–mechanical behaviour of shales and stiff clays, the geomechanical behaviour of the Opalinus Clay shale, complex laboratory trying out for website characterization and in–situ functions, and soil – constitution interactions.
