Geotechnical engineering and engineering geology

Physical and mechanical modelling of soils and rocks for civil and environmental engineering, under static and seismic loading; assessment of hydrogeological risk and analysis of mitigation interventions.

Geotechnical engineering deals with physical and mechanical characterization of soils and rocks and with relevant modelling of their behaviour, aimed at the analysis and design of civil and infrastructural works.

Engineering geology examines the stratigraphic, tectonic, geomorphological and hydrogeological characters of the territory, in order to identify the resources, the risks and the impacts related to the design of engineering works.

The related research activities at DICAM focus on:

  • the definition of the interplay between tectonics and sedimentation at a
    regional scale
  • the hydrogeological risk characterization, assessment and mitigation
  • the stability analysis of river embankments, the advanced geotechnical characterization of natural soils by in situ testing
  • the behaviour of historic foundations and of offshore foundation systems.
