Prof. Potts' areas of research
Finite Element Analysis of an embankment failure using MIT- E3 anisotropic soil model.
Professor Potts has worked extensively on the development of computer methods of analysis and, more particularly, on the application of elasto-plastic finite element programs to the design of real geotechnical structures.
Research undertaken includes (but not limited to)
- constitutive modelling
- geotechnical earthquake modelling
- partially saturated soils
- offshore foundations
- the Leaning Tower of Pisa
