Rock Fractures and Fluid Flow

rf3logo   rf3iceland
Home People Research Publications Links

 

Research topics and projects include:
Fluid transport in reservoirs Reservoir modelling Rock mechanics Seismotectonics
Structural Geology Thermodynamics/Statistical Mechanics Tectonophysics Volcanotectonics

Rock mechanics, in particular engineering rock mechanics, is closely related to rock fracture studies. Problems of stability of rock slopes, road tunnels, dams, and foundation consideration all relate to rock failure and fracture propagation. The group works closely with the Rock and Ice Physics Laboratory at University College London (see links).
