Research paper figures among the top cited since 2016 in the journal Computers and Geotechnics

The co-authored article entitled “Numerical study on the response of a group of energy piles under different combinations of thermo-mechanical loads” by Alice Di Donna, Alessandro F. Rotta Loria and Lyesse Laloui figures as one of the top cited research papers in the international scientific journal Computers and Geotechnics (source: Scopus). The paper presents one of the first analyses available about the multiphysical behavior of so-called energy pile groups, that is, innovative geotechnical structures that can provide combined structural support and energy supply to all types of built environments. The considered research has contributed to the development of fundamental knowledge for the analysis and design of such geotechnical structures, which are subjected to the unprecedented combination of mechanical and thermal loads.
