We are a group working on development of novel and state-of-the-art numerical techniques and computer models for a wide range of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering applications. 

The primary interests of our group lie in the areas of:

  • Finite element analysis of geotechnical engineering problems.
  • Intelligent finite element method and engineering applications.
  • Modelling of sea water intrusion and the effects on groundwater quality and desalination processes.
  • Stochastic finite element method and application to modelling of contaminant transport in unsaturated soils.
  • Decision support system for sustainable management of contaminated land.
  • Study of structural performance of an innovative storm water collection system.
  • Application of data mining techniques for constitutive modelling of soils.
  • Constitutive and finite element modelling of unsaturated soils.
  • Application of optimisation and parameter identification techniques to inverse problems.
  • Evolutionary optimisation.
  • Topological optimisation and design of microstructure of auxetic materials.
  • Modelling of expansive soils
