NTNU’s Geotechnical Group offers a PhD Course in Soil Modelling from September 3rd to 9th, 2018.
The course provides a background for development and application of the soil models used in finite element based computer codes. It focuses on soil behaviour, elasto-plastic theory, selected material models and their parameters. The aim is to provide a general theoretical framework for interpretation of the mechanical behaviour of soils.
The course is at postgraduate/PhD level. It is based on a combined mathematical and graphical approach but is designed to give a platform for practical application in geotechnical design.
Please see the attached file for further details.
We are delighted to launch ICONHIC2019; a major event that invites Engineers, Financers, Policy Makers and Innovators to join forces in order to set a robust and viable trace towards protecting our civil infrastructure from natural hazards.

Advanced course on Modeling of Localized Inelastic Deformation (LID 2018), taught by Milan Jirásek in Prague, Czech Republic, 3-7 September 2018.
This course provides an overview of modeling approaches used in the mechanics of inelastic materials and structures, with special attention to an objective description of highly localized deformation modes such as cracks or shear bands. It is one of the RILEM educational courses. The course is intended for graduate students at the doctoral level, but it can be equally useful to motivated master students, post-doctoral researchers, or senior researchers who are not specialists in this field.
