El grup realitza recerca en mecànica de sòls i de les roques i en l?àmbit de la geomecànica en general. També és actiu en un ampli espectre de matèries d'enginyeria geològica i geotècnica, com ara l?estabilitat de talussos, els fonaments, les excavacions, els túnels, l?avaluació de riscos geològics i l?emmagatzematge de residus. La seva activitat en la mecànica de sòls no saturats i l?aplicació de mètodes numèrics avançats és àmpliament reconeguda.

The group carries out research in soil and rock mechanics and in the field of geomechanics in general. It is also active in a wide range of geological and geotechnical engineering fields, such as slope stability, foundations, excavations, tunnels, the evaluation of geological risks, and waste disposal. The group?s activity in unsaturated soil mechanics and in the application of advanced numerical methods is widely recognised.

    This paper describes the thermohydromechanical (THM) simulation of engineered barrier systems (EBS) for the final disposal of nuclear spent fuel in Finland. The bentonite barriers were simulated with the Barcelona Basic ...
  • A cross-anisotropic formulation for elasto-plastic models 

    Mánica Malcom, Miguel Ángel; Gens Solé, Antonio; Vaunat, Jean; Ruiz Restrepo, Daniel Felipe (2016-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    A cross-anisotropic formulation for elasto-plastic constitutive models based on a non-uniform scaling of the stress tensor is described. Taking advantage of the material symmetries characterising cross-anisotropy, only two ...

  • Effect of temperature induced excess porewater pressures on the shaft bearing capacity of geothermal piles 

    Fuentes, Raúl; Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (Elsevier, 2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Changes in temperature in clays of low permeability typically induce excess porewater pressures. In the context of geothermal piles this effect has typically been overlooked since most installations have occurred in soils ...
