6th ALERT Olek Zienkiewicz Course (ALERT Summerschool) on Numerical Modelling in Geomechanics will be held in ETS de Ingenieros de Caminos, Canales y Puertos in Madrid (Spain) from 2nd to 6th June 2014. The main goal of this course is to provide PhD students with a sound knowledge of Computational Geomechanics. The course will include lectures at four levels:
(1) Basic: providing the fundamentals of the numerical techniques used
(2) Advanced and research: the students will learn special techniques to deal with non linear problems, dynamics, integration of constitutive equations. We aim to present current research within ALERT in this field.
(3) Applications to practical cases
(4) Practical. We believe that practise is fundamental when learning a computational technique. Therefore, we will provide a group of sessions where the students, with the help of instructors will practise with the finite element code GeHoMadrid.
Due to pedagogic reasons, the number of participant is limited to 25. The deadline for the registration is 2nd May 2014. Please use the registration form.
