Northern Energy Geomechanics Group
New publication in Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering
Sam Graham awarded best poster prize at Micro Materials workshop and conference on high temperature nanomechanical measurements.
NE2G has a strong track record in the development of multi-surface plasticity models for soils and rocks and their use in practical surface and subsurface energy applications.
Our researchers use a range of advanced software packages including coupled hydro-geomechanical finite element codes with adaptive remeshing. We have access to HPC resources for analysis of large-scale models.
Multiscale mechanical characterisation of geomaterials from soft clays to clastic sedimentary rocks. Homogenisation methods can link geomechanical properties from nano to core scale.
We use a range of techniques including atomic force microscopy, nanoindentation, triaxial cells and geotechnical centrifuge modelling.
