In Geotechnics, which at Imperial comprises Soil Mechanics and Engineering Geology, our focus is on understanding the mechanics, behaviour and properties of soils and soft rocks in order to provide real solutions to industry including tunnelling, oil and gas, infrastructure and road building. Our work involves numerical modelling, field monitoring and laboratory-based testing.
The group is very active in research, both industrial and towards the PhD degree, is heavily engaged in masters and undergraduate teaching, and has very strong links with Alumni groups worldwide, many of whom return regularly for visits and events, including the Annual BGA Rankine Lecture. We are delighted to have featured in the August 2015 Bulletin of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering as their research highlight article.
