The next hybrid gathering of the European Geoscience Union – EGU 2022 – will host for the second year the session on the effects of vegetation on unsaturated slope and streambank stability.
The NH1.6 session – Vegetation as nature-based solution for mitigating hydro-meteorological geohazards on slopes and streambanks – will run also this year at the hybrid EGU 2022. The session is coordinated by Vittoria Capobianco (Norwegian Geotechnical Institute – NGI), Sabatino Cuomo (University of Salerno), Dominika Krzeminska (Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research – NIBIO), Anil Yildiz (RWTH Aachen University) and Alessandro Fraccica (CIMNE, UPC Barcelona).
Conveners : Henri Bertin, Giulio Sciarra, Benoit Rousseau, Gérard Vignoles
This session aims to bring together academic and industrial researchers to present recent scientific advances in the study of the behavior of porous media, whether they are geomaterials, man-made or natural materials. The session aims to focus on the development and identification of effective constitutive laws in porous media, under different stresses of physical, chemical, thermal and / or mechanical nature, studied separately or coupled. Research on transport phenomena (conductive / diffusive, convective / advective, ballistic / radiative) is a central topic of this session, as well as studies on the evolution of the microstructure of a porous medium (dissolution / precipitation, chemical reactions of deposition / ablation / erosion, mechanical deformations, localization, damage, etc.). This microstructural evolution can be analyzed at the local scale, integrated into a macroscopic formulation or studied experimentally. In addition, instabilities due to non-linearities and / or couplings between elementary phenomena, which may be linked to interfaces, natural convection, deformations or others, at different scales of porous media, are a focal research topic of this session.
In this session, we aim to bring together scientists interested in all aspects of landslide thermo-hydro-mechanics, from experimental studies to field and remote-sensing monitoring, from microstructural analyses to geomechanical and geostatistical modelling at various spatial and temporal scales.
The session welcomes contributions about shallow geothermal energy applications, including traditional closed- and open-loop borehole heat exchangers as well as so-called energy geostructures (e.g. thermo-active foundations, walls, tunnels).
Different types of analysis and approaches are relevant to this session, spanning from the evaluation of ground thermal properties to the mapping of shallow geothermal potential, from energy storage and district heating to sustainability issues and consequences of the geothermal energy use, from the design of new heat exchangers and installation techniques to the energy and thermo-(hydro-)mechanical performance of energy geostructures, from the local behavior of a heat exchanger to the city scale implementation of energy geostructures. Contributions based on experimental, analytical and numerical modelling are welcome as well as interventions about legislative aspect.
CONVEENERS: Giorgia Dalla Santa (University of Padua, Italy), Jean De Sauvage (IFSTTAR Université Gustave Eiffel, France) and Francesco Cecinato (University of Milan, Italy)
Due to the continuing difficulties that many people in the EGU community, all around the world, are experiencing, the abstract submission deadline for EGU22 is being extended to FRIDAY, 14 JANUARY AT 13.00 CET
We invite you to submit a contribution to the special issue on “Bio-inspired Geotechnics” in the Acta Geotechnica journal, for which Julian Tao (ASU) and Alejandro Martinez (UC Davis) will serve as guest editors. This special issue will accept original research papers, short communications, and review papers on experimental, numerical, and analytical investigations.
The deadline for submissions is September 30th, 2022; however, early submissions will be reviewed as they are submitted.
Attached, you can find the call for papers for this special issue.
We are pleased to announce the first call to access facilities within the framework of EXCITE Transnational Access programme.
The first call will be open for proposals from 1st of December 2021 until the 28th of February 2022. In this first round, the EXCITE TNA programme will provide coordinated access to 24 imaging facilities in nine countries to researchers of any level.
The call information is now available here and applicants can submit their proposals using the online application procedure. Proposal selection will be carried out on the basis of the technical feasibility, and scientific quality of the proposals, this latter carried out by a panel of EM and X-ray microscopy experts, external to EXCITE.

The organising committee of the “Computational Modelling for Future Research in Geoenvironmental Sciences” (CMFRGS) webinar series invites you to the 5th webinar entitled “SPH applications in geotechnical engineering and applied geology” presented by Dr Chong Peng from the University of Natural Resources, Vienna, Austria.
Webinar 5 is scheduled to be hosted at 9:00 am (CET), 8th November 2021 with registration for this webinar closing at 24:00 (CET), 5th November 2021.
In the framework of Research Training Group GRK 2462 “Processes in Natural and Technical Particle- Fluid-Systems“ (PintPFS), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), researchers from the fields of civil engineering, mechanical engineering, process engineering and materials sciences investigate natural and technical Particle-Fluid-Systems in an interdisciplinary approach. GRK 2462 is formed by eight professors from Hamburg University of Technology leading the PhD research projects of eight junior scientists. In this international conference the Research Training Group brings together all associated scientists and external guest scientists to present and discuss research results of the first 3 year period. While the junior scientists give insights into their research work at TUHH, the international guest scientists will present on the corresponding state of the art in their related fields of research. Interested colleagues from research and industry are cordially invited to join the workshop.
