The research achievements of the Geomechanics Group focus of the development on innovative numerical methods for the analysis and design of underground structures (tunnels, foundations, geo-reservoirs, etc), earth and rockfill dams, new geo-materials and fluid-soil-structure interaction problems.

The scientific contributions and software resulting from the research activity Geomechanics Group have particular relevance to the solution of multidisciplinary problems in the fields of civil, geological and mining engineering , among others.
