Our research group is focused on the numerical simulation of geomechanical processes on various scales. Numerical methods such as 2D and 3D finite element analysis are utilized to simulate in situ stress conditions in order to investigate specific geomechanical aspects and their influences on geologic processes and engineering applications.
Research areas include:
3D stress distribution of a periclinal buckle fold.
