The Computational Geomechanics minisymposium (Session ID: 1701) is going to be held at the World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM XIII) in New York City from July 22-27th, 2018. The call for abstracts will be open between October 15 and December 31, 2017.
Researchers are invited to submit an abstract to the interactive poster session at EGU 2018 in Vienna on
Multi-scale measurements of the Earth’s properties and imaging techniques: from laboratory to large-scale Earth phenomena

The Department of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) invites interested candidates for a PhD position in a research project related with the analysis of the micromechanical behaviour of soil/rock material with high clay mineral content. The position is affiliated with the Section of Geotechnics and Geology.
For more information, please see the corresponding website.
The following PhD position (initially announced here: http://wp.me/p20mTt-15K) is still open:
A PhD position is available at the University Grenoble Alpes in France on “Micro-macro modelling by the method of discrete elements (DEM) of the long-term behaviour of shaft seals under hydraulic-gas loading”.
The School of Engineering and the Built Environment at Edinburgh Napier University is seeking a PhD student for Numerical (Geomechanical) Modelling of the Seismic/Dynamic Behaviour of Rubber/Sand Mixtures as a Ground Improvement Method.

It is our pleasure to announce the edition of a new Treatise that falls within the scope of the GDRI:
Failure in Geomaterials offers a unified view of material failure as an instability of deformation modes framed within the theory of bifurcation.
Authors: Richard Wan, Francois Nicot and Felix Darve Continue reading
Since 2007, the soilmodels.info website has been reached by thousands of geotechnical engineers to download free implementations of advanced constitutive models for geomaterials. Ten years later, its successor is introduced: “SoilModels : Hub For Geotechnical Professionals”. SoilModels transformed to community site joining advanced professionals in all fields of geotechnical engineering, motivating to share ideas, discuss new developments and offer consultancy services to potential users of advanced modelling approaches. You may find here all the implementations from the original soilmodels.info website, and much more…
