Prof. Santamarina, ANPERC's Associate Director, launched the development of temporary lab space and began investigations throughout Summer 2015. This lab, the Energy Geo-Engineering Laboratory, is located in temporary space during the construction of ANPERC's Center Laboratory.
EGEL's research places emphasis on the fundamental understanding of geo-materials, coupled thermo-hydro-bio-chemo-mechanically coupled processes and emergent phenomena, with applications to the energy sector. The approach is based on elegant experimental designs (with extensive instrumentation and monitoring), complemented with simple but robust analytical solutions and numerical simulations.
