Research students from our Victorian institutions will give a short talk on their research projects throughout the technical meeting. The main objective is to let the AGS members know about some of the current research and development studies being undertaking in Victoria, and to share and discuss R&D needs and ideas.
The Grad Night will provide an opportunity for research students (nearing completion/ in final year of their degree) to present a quick summary of their Geomechanics related research work (10 minute presentation), including:
Nick Makasis, University of Melbourne:
Optimising the Design of Energy Piles using Machine Learning
Genaro Gonzalo Carnero Guzman, Monash University:
Hydraulic Performance of Geosynthetic Clay Liners Under Extereme Cold Environment
Amirhassan Mehdizadeh, Swinburne University:
A Multi Scale Investigation of Post-erosion Mechanical Behaviour of an InternallyUunstable Gap-graded Soil
Tabassom Afshar, Swinburne University
Micro-scale Behaviour of Recycled Construction and Demolition Material: Discrete Element Method Simulations and Synchrotron Tomography
Yuqi Tan, RMIT
Water Inflow Rate and Hydraulic Pressure Prediction of a Metro Tunnel Under Water Table
Amir Orangi, University of Melbourne
Evaluation of Soil Properties Using Electromagnetic Waves
Engineers Australia members participating in AGS technical sessions can record attendance on their personal CPD logs. Members should refer to Engineers Australia CPD policy for details on CPD types, requirements and auditing guidelines.
