Summary

 

Overview

Prof. Potts' areas of research

Vectors showing the displacements of the embankment 

Finite Element Analysis of an embankment failure using MIT- E3 anisotropic soil model.

Numerical Analysis:

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)

  • embankments
  • dams
  • foundations
  • pipelines
  • constitutive modelling
  • geotechnical earthquake modelling
  • partially saturated soils
  • tunnels
  • offshore foundations
  • the Leaning Tower of Pisa
