Our research is focused mainly on practice-orientated topics of geotechnics and underground construction.

Some of our topics:

  •     Material behavior of geomaterials
  •     Material behavior of concrete and shotcrete
  •     Developments of test facilities in geotechnics
  •     Numerical simulation of grouting
  •     Calculation approaches and innovative further developments for TVM and pipe jacking
  •     Further development of supporting means and rock improvement in cavity construction
  •     Design approaches for underground cavity structures
  •     Design approaches for stability investigations of slopes
  •     Testing of individual components for rockfall protection systems

    Scientific investigations and developments of construction machines and their technology
    Measurement instrumentation of construction machines, especially tunnel boring machines.
