EUROCLAY, Paris 2019 : Geotechnical characterisation of clayey geomaterials from micro to macroscale : the role of microstructure and anisotropy

Description

A geological/geomechanical session entitled “Geotechnical characterisation of clayey geomaterials from micro to macroscale : the role of microstructure and anisotropy” is planned during the forthcoming Euroclay conference, planned in Paris from 1st to 5th July 2019 (https://euroclay2019.sciencesconf.org). This session is organized by Prof. P. Cosenza (Université de Poitiers), P. Delage (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech), Dr. M. Duc (IFSTTAR) and Prof. C. Spiers (Utrecht University). The main objective of the session is to bring together geotechnical/geomechanical engineers, clay scientists and material scientists working on problems related to the characterisation of clayey geomaterials at different scales, with a focus on the following topics:

(i) Quantitative characterisation of microstructure: imaging/physico-chemical techniques and statistical approaches to characterize the microstructure and the anisotropy of clayey geomaterials;

(ii) Experimental and theoretical methods to interpret geotechnical/geomechanical properties in terms of microstructural parameters.

 

Organizer

Additional Information

This session is part of EUROCLAY 2019, an International Conference on Clay Science and Technology. EUROCLAY is amongst the foremost scientific meetings in the field of clays and clay minerals. It will consist of scientific and technical sessions with both oral and poster presentations, arranged around four main themes, namely: Crystallography, mineralogy and modelling Environment and geological processes Resources, energy, storage Functionalized clays and archeology
