Outline of lectures:

Day 1: This lecture will give a basic introduction to soil heterogeneity, the statistical representation of soil parameters, the modelling of soil structures using the random finite element method (RFEM), and the analysis of soil structures in terms of reliability. It will also illustrate the characterisation of soil heterogeneity and its impact on the response of geotechnical structures formed underwater.

Day 2: This lecture will consider the impact of soil heterogeneity on the design of geotechnical structures, with an emphasis on an interpretation of Eurocode 7 based on the consideration of soil heterogeneity and the use of RFEM. It will also focus on the impact of 3D considerations when modelling the reliability of soil embankment slopes associated with flood defence and transport infrastructures.

Day 3: This lecture will give an introduction to the modelling of problems involving large deformations using the material point method (MPM), including the analysis of problems accounting for soil heterogeneity using the random material point method (RMPM).

报告人简介:

Michael Hicks is Professor of Soil Mechanics and head of the Section of Geo-Engineering at Delft University of Technology. He has nearly 40 years’ experience in the numerical modelling of soils, and his expertise includes the finite element method, the material point method, adaptive mesh refinement, stochastic analysis, constitutive modelling, static liquefaction, strain localisation and soil heterogeneity. In particular, he leads a research team of 2 postdoctoral researchers and 12 PhD students with an emphasis on risk and variability in geotechnical engineering.
