Dr. Francisco Zabala

Earthquake Engineering Research Institute National University of San Juan, Argentina
"Modelling of geotechnical problems with the Material Point Method".

Dr. Francisco Zabala de "Earthquake Engineering Research Institute National University of San Juan", Argentine viendra présenter ses travaux le jeudi 11 février 2016 à 11h00 au rez de chaussée du bâtiment Galilée dans la salle 003.

Le titre de sa présentation :

"Modelling of geotechnical problems with the Material Point Method".

Summary :

This talk is about some results and research in progress related to the analysis of geotechnical cases using the Material Point Method. After a brief introduction an explicit formulation for hydro mechanical coupling is shown. Aznalcóllar dam failure is reviewed using the Material Point Method. Vaiont landslide is used as a study case for the thermo-hydro mechanical analysis of fast slides. Some other problems are shown : a CFRD dam seismic response analysis, a case of tailings run off after dam failure.
