Rankine Seminar 2017 at Imperial College

  • 03.02.2017

The field of Energy Geotechnics focusses on geotechnical issues associated with infrastructure designed to meet the rising energy demand. These problems typically subject geomaterials to complex loading conditions of mechanical, hydraulic, thermal and chemical origin, leading to the need to understand, characterise and model highly-coupled phenomena. In this half-day seminar, recent developments in the field of Energy Geotechnics will be presented focusing on both fundamental and applied research. The first part of the seminar will be dedicated to the development of numerical, experimental and physical modelling tools required for the characterisation and modelling of heat transfer in soils and its interaction with their hydro-mechanical behaviour. The second part will demonstrate practical applications of ground source energy and how this affects the design of geotechnical structures, concluding with an in-depth analysis of thermo-hydro-mechanical interactions in nuclear repositories.
