Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering Research Group

Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering Research Group

At the Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering Research Group, School of Engineering. Edith Cowan University, we work on cost-effective, environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions to the problems in the broad area of civil engineering practice known as the Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering. We collaborate with several world-class universities, research institutions, industries and individuals on academic and field projects.

We collaborate with several world-class universities, research institutions, industries and individuals on academic and field projects.

We have recently identified some new areas for extending our research focus, such as soil-cement (cement may be waste cementitious materials from industries), biocementation (changing loose/weak geomaterials to dense/hard geomaterials by biological activities), soil erosion and air pollution, waste management, effect of climate change on geomaterials and geotechnical structures, effect of sea level rise on tunnels and other burried structures, sustainable construction materials, reduction of carbon footprint in civil/geotechnical construction, geological aspects of geothermal energy, rehabilitation/closure of old mines and landfills, mine excavation and mineral processing (geotechnical/geoenvironmental engineering aspects), and analysis and design of tailing dams.
