After completion of the course, participants will have a broad view on the state-of-the-art and the challenges related to the GAS and HITEC research programme.
In particular, the attendees will be able to:
- Understand the thermo-hydro-mechanical (multi-physical) couplings in geomaterials;
- Understand the fundamentals on constitutive modelling of the relevant phenomena;
- Identify the challenges in numerical modelling of these physical processes;
- Recognize and discuss the experimental evidences at the laboratory scale;
- Analyze the physical processes thanks to in-situ tests.
