« Clayey geomaterials from micro to macroscale » Euroclay 2019 – Paris

Dear colleagues,

I would like to draw your attention on a geological/geomechanical session in the next Euroclay conference which will take place in Paris from 1st to 5th July 2019 (website).

This session entitled “Geotechnical characterisation of clayey geomaterials from micro to macroscale : the role of microstructure and anisotropy” is organized by Prof. Pierre Delage (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech), Dr. Myriam Duc (IFSTTAR), Prof. Christopher Spiers (Utrecht University) and myself.
Our main objective is to bring together geotechnical/geomechanical engineers, clay scientists and material scientists working on problems related to the characterisation of clayey geomaterials at different scales with a focus on the following topics: (i) Quantitative characterisation of microstructure: imaging/physico-chemical techniques and statistical approaches to characterize the microstructure and the anisotropy of clayey geomaterials; (ii) Experimental and theoretical methods to interpret geotechnical/geomechanical properties in terms of microstructural parameters.

We would like to encourage you to submit an abstract for our session. Online abstract submission is now open in the link and closes *** 31 January 2019***

Looking forward to receiving your abstracts and seeing you in Paris!

Best regards,
