Civil & Environmental EngineeringGeomechanics laboratories

Our geomechanics laboratories provide a vibrant and developing range of equipment and services. We have facilities for testing and monitoring geomaterials at the microscale (grain/aggregate level), mesocale (laboratory testing) and macroscale (field monitoring).

Particular areas of interest include:

  • hydro-mechanical behaviour of geomaterials
  • faults & fluid flow
  • advanced materials science & applications
  • non intrusive geophysical ground investigation

And industrial challenges, including:

  • geological disposal of radioactive waste
  • carbon capture & storage
  • flood embankments
