GeoEngineering Research Group​

​​The GeoEngineering Research Group tackles contemporary problems that involve Ground Improvement, Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, Quantification of​ Hazards and Risk (Reliability) of Geo-Systems (Slopes, foundations, earth retaining​ ​systems, etc.), Energy Geotechnics, Offshore Geotechnics and Sustainable Geo-​Materials Natural fiber reinforced soils and Rammed earth construction).

The Group’s research methodology is founded on two main pillars: (1) an experimental pillar that involves testing at scales varying from laboratory physical model tests and triaxial tests all the way to full-scale field tests, and (2) a theoretical pillar that is based on numerical soil-structure interaction solutions and probabilistic/risk-based design principles.
