Research Interests

Geo-structures are influenced by repetitive loading induced from many different ways in nature. The cyclic loading changes the mechanical properties and engineering behavior of soil mixtures. The objective of this research is to explore the long-term response of granular material subjected to repetitive mechanical loading. Constitutive soil parameters, volumetric threshold strains, and terminal void ratios are explored with a new test method.
