By Alessio Ferrari,Lyesse Laloui

In this spirit, the ATMSS overseas Workshop “Advances in Laboratory trying out & Modelling of Soils and Shales” (Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland; 18-20 January 2017) has been geared up to advertise the trade of principles, event and cutting-edge between significant specialists energetic within the box of experimental trying out and modelling of soils and shales. The Workshop has been prepared below 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 offered on the Workshop. the subjects of the lectures and papers hide a variety of theoretical and experimental learn, together with unsaturated behaviour of soils and shales, multiphysical trying out of geomaterials, hydro–mechanical behaviour of shales and stiff clays, the geomechanical behaviour of the Opalinus Clay shale, complicated laboratory checking out for web site characterization and in–situ purposes, and soil – constitution interactions.
