Chiara Deangeli, DIATI- Politecnico di Torino, Italy

1992 MSc Degree in Mining Engineering, Geotechnical specialization, at Politecnico di Torino.

1997 PhD. Geo-environmental Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. Title PhD. thesis: “Methods of analysis of debris flow: physical, mathematical and numerical modeling”.

1998 PostDoc at Politecnico di Torino on the subject "Studies on the mechanical behavior of waste granular materials".

2001 Assistant Professor in Geotechnics

2013-present Adjunct Professor “Reservoir Geomechanics/Petroleum Geomechanics”

2013-present Adjunct Professor “Landslides and Slope Engineering/ Slope stability”

The research activity focuses on the interpretation of laboratory tests and in situ tests and numerical modeling of continuous and discontinuous media. The research is documented by more than 60 scientific papers published in national and international journals, proceedings and book chapters.

Main research fields:

• Slope stability in rocks and soils with particular emphasis to rapid granular flows and climate change effect on landslide activity. Set up of integrated methods for the definition of debris flow hazard scenarios in Alpine environment, in collaboration with regional agencies. Stability of earth dams/embankments subject to changes in pore water pressures.

• Mechanical response of rocks in engineering applications: tunnel stability in saturated porous rocks; wellbore stability in transversely isotropic rocks at large depths; subsidence in sedimentary rocks related to hydrocarbon production; stability of caverns (salt and hard rocks) used in gas storage.

Since 1998, Chiara Deangeli collaborated and was research leader in several projects funded by EU, MIUR, and Private Companies, related to soil and rock mechanics in engineering applications.

2019-present. In charge of the research activity "Geomechanics" in the framework agreement Gazprom-Neft-Russia - Politecnico di Torino.


She has been invited lecturer in several National and International Workshops in the field of Stability of slopes.
