Intensive Course on Energy Geostructures: Analysis and Design
20 – 22 March 2018, EPF Lausanne
We are pleased to inform you about a 3-day intensive course for practitioners and scientists entitled “Energy geostructures: analysis and design” that will be held at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, EPFL, Switzerland, from March 20th to March 22nd, 2018.
By attending this training, you will:
- Develop your understanding of the thermo-mechanical behaviour and performance of energy geostructures, such as energy piles, energy walls and energy tunnels.
- Increase your familiarity with all of the key steps involved in the analysis and design process of energy geostructures with practical application exercises, including analytical and numerical simulation exercises.
- Learn how to follow the current standards available at the European level (e.g., the so-called “Eurocodes”) for the analysis and design of energy geostructures.
- Increase your knowledge about the energy, geotechnical and structural analysis and design of energy geostructures.
The course has been designed with civil engineers in mind, but targets energy engineers, architects and urban project managers as well. The course will be valuable for attendees who have no experience with energy geostructures as well as for those who have already been involved in a project of energy geostructures. As some of the course is based on the Thermo-Pile software, you will receive a complimentary 3-month academic license to improve your skills in the analysis and design of energy piles.
The number of participants for this intensive course is limited. The available spots will be filled on a first come first served basis.
More information about the course can be found below and on the web.
We look forward to seeing you at EPFL.
