    2010 Behaviour of cemented clay simulated via the theoretical framework of the Structured Cam Clay model
    Published in   Computers and Geotechnics
    2011 General strength criterion for geometerials including anisotropic effect

Research Overview


  • Constitutive modelling of the behaviour of geomaterials including rock joints based on available experimental data. A number of research topics can be included in this category, such as a study on one type of geo-materials (i.e., clay, sand, calcareous soil, gravel, rock, or rock mass), a particular structure that found in nature or artificially formed for special engineering purposes including geosynthetics soils. Also included in this category of research is the behaviour of structured soils under special circumstances such as cyclic loading, creep effect, strain rate effect, temperature effect, degrees of saturation, and fissures.

    A study of the development and formulation anisotropy in engineering geomaterials and its influence on their mechanical behaviour.
    Numerical analysis of soil and structure interaction, such as developing finite element analysis codes for new constitutive models and new structure elements, and solving boundary value problems encountered in geotechnical engineering practice.
