2. Thermo-Mechanical Behaviour of Geomaterials: Experiments and Modelling
- Introduction to geomechanical problems involving thermal effects.
- Rheological evidences of geomaterials in non-isothermal conditions: volumetric response, thermally-induced hardening, thermal collapse, pore water pressure generation, non-linearity, shear strength’s dependency, interface behaviour.
- Experimental geomechanics involving temperature changes: temperature measurement and control, controlled-temperature layouts, strain monitoring.
- Constitutive modelling of the non-isothermal behaviour of geomaterials in the context of elasto-plasticity.
