2. Thermo-Mechanical Behaviour of Geomaterials: Experiments and Modelling


Lecturer

Alessio Ferrari


Content

  • 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.
