Geotechnical engineering

The geotechnical engineering research group focuses on research areas including geotechnics of pavements using recycled demolition materials, applications of reclaimed and waste materials in geotechnical engineering applications, ground improvement, soil stabilisation and geosynthetic applications, land reclamation and dredging, soft soils and problematic soils, footings on expansive clays and pavement stabilization.

Our projects are supported by physical testing in the Geotechnical Laboratory using state-of-the-art geotechnical equipment, as well as computational geotechnical software.
