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.
