In this spirit, the ATMSS foreign Workshop “Advances in Laboratory checking out & Modelling of Soils and Shales” (Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland; 18-20 January 2017) has been prepared to advertise the alternate of principles, adventure and cutting-edge between significant specialists lively within the box of experimental checking out and modelling of soils and shales. The Workshop has been prepared lower than the auspices of the Technical Committees TC-101 “Laboratory Testing”, TC-106 “Unsaturated Soils” and TC-308 “Energy Geotechnics” of the foreign Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.
This quantity includes the invited keynote and have lectures, in addition to the papers which have been awarded on the Workshop. the subjects of the lectures and papers conceal a variety of theoretical and experimental learn, together with unsaturated behaviour of soils and shales, multiphysical checking out of geomaterials, hydro–mechanical behaviour of shales and stiff clays, the geomechanical behaviour of the Opalinus Clay shale, complicated laboratory checking out for website characterization and in–situ functions, and soil – constitution interactions.
