Analysis of ductile and brittle deformation mechanisms of landfill sites in carbonates areas and in gypsiferous-clysh areas to establish the interaction between rock mass and the fluid flow

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research, part of the PON SIGLOD project, is going to be aimed to the structural characterization of layered rocks in landfill sites lying persisting on carbonate areas and gypsiferous-clysh areas.

In particular, the research will focus on:

- qualitative and quantitative analysis of deformation mechanisms affecting carbonate and gypsiferous-clysh deposits and the possible interactions with petrophisical properties of the rocks (porosity, permeability), and the stratigraphic feature of the successions (mechanical stratigraphy), to characterize the fluid (water, pollutants) migration/storage mechanisms;

- analysis and modeling of the faults and shear zones architecture, and the study of their nucleation and growth processes, with the aim to understand how their characteristic elements (core zone, damage zone) act on the underground fluid flow.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
