Presentations of the ALERT Doctoral School 2021

ALERT Doctoral School 2021
30th September-2nd October 2020, “Constitutive Modelling in Geomaterials”
Coordination: Claudio Tamagnini and David Mašín

DAY 1: BASIC CONCEPTS

  • Basic features of soil behaviour and soil testing (Cristina Jommi)
  • Fundamentals of constitutive modelling for soils (Ivo Herle)
  • The theory of plasticity in constitutive modelling of rate–independent soils (Claudio Tamagnini)
  • Hypoplasticity and other incrementally non-linear modelling approaches (David Mašín)

DAY 2: SPECIFIC PROBLEMS

  • Modelling non-linearity, small-strain stiffness and cyclic loading (David Mašín)
  • General overview on modelling the coupled behaviour of unsaturated soils (Cristina Jommi)
  • Meta-stable structure, breakage and thermal effects (David Mašín)
  • Time and rate dependence (Claudio di Prisco)
  • Finite deformation plasticity (Claudio Tamagnini)

DAY 3: STEPS TOWARDS APPLICATIONS

  • Numerical implementation of constitutive models (Claudio Tamagnini)
  • Macroelement modelling (Claudio di Prisco, Luca Flessati)
  • Hands-on calibration session (the use of calibration software) (David Mašín, Claudio Tamagnini)
