Geotechnics

Rapid development of urban areas poses increasing risks in geo-hazards, including soil liquefaction. A series of strategic measures are required for establishing higher performance of geotechnical works. They are pursuing research for achieving the objective taking various approaches, such as nonlinear e ective stress analyses and geotechnical centrifuge model tests.
