About the Laboratory of Geomaterials

The Laboratory of Geo-Materials of NTUA is a research and educational unit specializing on geo-mechanical modeling. Our current and past research activities cover applications from civil-, mining- and petroleum engineering. We develop expertise and train young engineers in applied Mechanics covering a wide range of analytical numerical and physical modeling issues.The emphasis lies in the constitutive theory of multi-phase porous media materials with micro-structure with application on bifurcation and localization phenomena, wave propagation, damage- and fracture mechanics, internal and surface erosion phenomena, landslides and debris flows.
