Groundwater Protection with Geosynthetics Clay Liners: Behaviour under Unsaturated Conditions

Geosynthetic Clay Liners (GCLs) are engineered systems made of bentonite clay sandwiched between two geotextiles and used in conjunction with high-density polyethylene geomembranes more...

The modes of granular segregation

Granular segregation will be studied using dynamic X-ray tomography. This will be a pioneering study into the fundamental mechanisms underlying the phenomenon of segregation. more...

Levee formation in debris flows and avalanches

Levees are a feature of many gravity current flows, yet their formation is not fully understood. This project will track their formation in laboratory scale experiments, and develop more...

Crushable granular flows

In both earthquakes and landslides, grains are often crushed during flow. This changes the flowing behaviour, and causes the flow to accelerate. This project will develop an experim more...

Concrete and rock hydro-cracking

The purpose of this research is to identify the micro-mechanisms governing the permeability of concrete and rocks featuring cracks, and those governing the crack opening induced by more...
