EURAD School for Radioactive Waste Management (GAS & HITEC WPs) - Multiphysical couplings in geomechanics: a focus on thermal effect and gas transfer impact on the behaviour of geomaterials

January 22 - 24, 2020   Liège (BELGIUM)

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.
