Construction Materials and Geotechnics

The construction materials and geotechnics research area focuses on studying the mechanical behaviour of advanced structural materials such as high-performance concrete and high strength steel, and challenging geo-materials. Additional focus is on the complex interaction between civil engineering structures and the ground. Emphasis is placed on characterising and linking material structure and components to the mechanical behaviour at both micro and macro scale under the influence of complex loading conditions. For this purpose, state-of-the art laboratory facilities are utilised in combination with advanced numerical tools.
