We are very happy to announce the following keynote speaker for the 4th International Conference on Civil, Structural and Transportation Engineering (ICCSTE'19).
Dr. Giovanni Grasselli
Giovanni Grasselli is Professor and NSERC/Energi Simulation Research Chair in Fundamental Rock Physics and Rock Mechanics at the University of Toronto. His research focuses on hybrid finite-discrete element (FDEM) numerical technology, experimental geomechanics applied to the study of tunneling and hydraulic fracturing. He received the prestigious ISRM Rocha Medal (2004) for best thesis worldwide in rock mechanics and supervised two Rocha Medal winner (2015 and 2017). Through the start-up company Geomechanica Inc., the FDEM technology is currently commercialized and translated to engineering practice.
Topic of Keynote:Advanced Numerical Modeling in Engineering - FDEM: A MicroMechanical Appproach that Bridges Across ScalesKeynote Abstract
The organizing committees of two co-located events, ICCSTE'19 and RTESE'19, have decided to allow registrants of either conference to attend sessions from both events. As a result, we encourage attendees to study the program for both conferences and attend the sessions which they may find relevant/interesting.
