UE Geomechanics

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


Geomechanics is a physico-mechanical approach to soils and rocks, materials that are complicated to study because of their heterogeneity and particulate structure. The aim is to give students the basic elements for characterising these materials in situ (using recognition methods) and in the laboratory, and teach them the fundamental principles relating to the study of the stability of earthworks.
