A new PhD position is open at the Université Gustave Eiffel, France. The project will focus on the investigate the influence of ground liquefaction on the behavior of homogeneous embankment under seismic loading. The technical strategy of this study will be a combined approach of 70% physical centrifuge modeling and 30% numerical modeling. The experimental study will provide important proof on the physical phenomena and essential data for numerical modeling; Being the complimentary of experimental work, the calibrated numerical model will be used to carry out parametric and case studies. Based on the experimental and numerical work, possible remediation strategies could be proposed, which could be helpful for the construction of embankment-type geo-structures in the industrial sector.
Application closing date: April 15, 2020
