Research themas

In addition to these 2 axes mainly regarding ‘’ Hazards and Risks” of GERS department, RRO fields are geotechnical engineering, on projects about behavior and sizing of geotechnical works, especially rocks. Here are examples of current works showing the skills of our team:

  • The resistance of interfaces between rock and concrete in gravity dams (scale effect on direct shear test results )
  • The traction and shear behavior of passive anchorages to rocks
  • With INSA de Lyon, the finalization of an innovative process for the building of excavation retaining walls by soil nailing,
  • The dynamic behavior of buildings in Terre Armée when TGV go, etc
