Geotechnical Engineering People

Ron D. Andrus - Geotechnical Engineering; Soil Dynamics; Site Characterization; Non-Destructive Testing; Earthquake Engineering; Earthquake Hazard Mapping; Liquefaction; Slope Stability and Shear Strength

Qiushi Chen - Dr. Chen's research focuses on modeling and predicting material behavior and system response under complex and extreme environment through efficient and accurate numerical models, ranging from granular scale all the way to field scale. In particular, we are interested in failure and instability problems in geomaterials and metals, multiscale and multiphysics problems in porous medium, high-performance computing environment development in geotechnical engineering and geomechanics."
