The study is aimed at the identification of the resistance of embankment border of little reservoirs
and of the modification of the before mentioned capacity caused by the variation of the mechanic
characteristics (mainly the shear strength) due to the variation of the water content in the material
constituting the embankment. During the study in question FE parametric analyses will be carried
out. Therefore, a high skill in this type of analysis and a recognized research ability are requested.
The PhD degree will be considered preferable
