Interests: underground storage of nuclear wastes and CO2, soils from relatively dry state to quasi-saturated with occluded air bubbles, rammed earthen constructions, tunnel excavation with face confinement
Computations in geomechanics have evolved rapidly, and this Special Issue, “Advances in Computational Geomechanics”, aims to capture some of the recent developments.
There is no doubt that the advent of the digital computer, and more recently the Internet and artificial intelligence, have led to a proliferation of interesting and innovative computational concepts, methods, algorithms and applications related to the solving of problems dealing with the mechanics of geomaterials, namely, soils, rocks, grains and snow.
We invite contributions from researchers and practitioners for this Special Issue in the form of high quality original research articles, reviews and technical notes based on their recent work on computational geomechanicss.
Topics of interest appropriate for this issue include constitutive modelling, limit analysis, multi-scale modelling, numerical modelling, fracture mechanics, artificial intelligence, stochastic methods, plasticity, analytical and semi-analytical methods, back analysis, optimisation, and failure analysis as applied to problems in geomechanics.
If in doubt, it is recommended that authors should contact one of the Guest Editors to seek clarification on the appropriateness of their potential contributions. It would be useful in this case to include a short abstract briefly outlining the objectives of the research and the key results obtained. Finally, the full manuscript is required to be submitted by the closing date of 30 November 2018.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
