Geology and Geotechnics

 

Research areas

The Division consists of two strong research groups: Engineering Geology and Geotechnics - EG2, and Environmental Geology – Land and Water Resources, EGR.

Environmental Geology – Land and Water Resources research group studies risks associated with contamination and other disturbances, and technical systems utilizing these resources. The main focus is on industrially contaminated sites and drinking water systems. 

The Engineering Geology and Geotechnics research group studies the complex material behaviour arising from the particulate nature of natural soils and the associated coupled processes, such as e.g. deformations resulting from groundwater and heat flow, and laboratory and in situ behaviour arising from the discrete nature of fractures in crystalline rock and the associated coupled processes, such as fluid flow and deformations resulting from change in hydraulic head and rock stresses.

This group will in the coming years grow with two new recruitments, with an updated of strategy both with regard to teaching and research.
