Environmental Geomechanics cover a wide range of topics
concerned with the mechanical behaviour of geomaterials.
The problems addressed are complex, mainly due to the
coexistence of several species and phases, to their
interaction and their often non-linear behaviour.
Experimental evidence is difficult to obtain and laboratory
as well as in-situ testing procedures present serious
challenges. Numerical techniques are used to solve the
complex non-linear analytical systems. Integration of new
models for engineering applications will require a
considerable effort among engineering teams. Due to the
number of phenomena influencing the solutions an
interdisciplinary approach to Environmental Geomechanics is
The first part of the volume contains invited keynote lectures addressing various aspects of the subject of Environmental Geomechanics. It can serve as a starting point for further research thanks to its in-depth treatment and its rich bibliographic references. The second part contains various selected contributions. These reflect the broad scope of Environmental Geomechanics and appeal for more research efforts in this domain. Many practical problems relating to engineering practice are also presented which make the book an invaluable "state of the art" guide in this very important field.
The Workshop will specifically cover the following topics of environmental geomechanics: Constitutive aspects - Mechanics of unsaturated soils, thermal behaviour, influence of chemical content of fluids on the mechanical properties, durability, creep and long-term effects. Coupled Formulations - Thermodynamics, mixture theories, intercation between constituents, phase changes. Case studies - Advanced modelling of real cases will provide example of potential and limitations of the existing theories.
