Environmental Geomechanics cover a wide range of topics concerned with the mechanical behaviour of geomaterials. The problems addressed are complex, mainly due to the coexistence of several species and phases, to their interaction and their often non-linear behaviour. Experimental evidence is difficult to obtain and laboratory as well as in-situ testing procedures present serious challenges. Numerical techniques are used to solve the complex non-linear analytical systems. Integration of new models for engineering applications will require a considerable effort among engineering teams. Due to the number of phenomena influencing the solutions an interdisciplinary approach to Environmental Geomechanics is therefore necessary.
The first part of the volume contains invited keynote lectures addressing various aspects of the subject of Environmental Geomechanics. It can serve as a starting point for further research thanks to its in-depth treatment and its rich bibliographic references. The second part contains various selected contributions. These reflect the broad scope of Environmental Geomechanics and appeal for more research efforts in this domain. Many practical problems relating to engineering practice are also presented which make the book an invaluable 'state of the art' guide in this very important field.
Laurent Vulliet is Professor of Soil Mechanics and Dean of the School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL). He got his PhD at EPFL, lectured at the University of Arizona (Tucson, USA) and worked in a Swiss geotechnical consulting firm before joining EPFL in 1994. His teaching and research interests cover in particular the modelling of geomaterials, including the various coupling effects, leading to applications in environmental geomechanics and in natural risk management.
Lyesse Laloui is Senior researcher and Lecturer at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL). He obtained his PhD at the Ecole Centrale Paris. He worked at the BRGM (French leader group in surface and subsurface geosciences) and the Ecole Centrale Paris before moving to the EPFL. His background covers contributions in the areas of geomaterial modeling, testing and computational (finite element) methods. He recently co-edited a book on thermal response tests.
Bernard Schrefler is Professor of Structural Mechanics at the University of Padua and Secretary General of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences (CISM) in Udine. He obtained a DSc at the University of Wales, an honorary doctorate from the St Petersburg State Technical University and from the University of Technology of Lodz. He has published more than 300 papers on structural engineering, soil mechanics and environmental mechanics, as well as on technology for nuclear fusion, and has written or edited 20 books.
