Welcome to the Computational Geomechanics Lab at Clemson University! With a core expertise in computational geomechanics, our research has been focusing on understanding, modeling, and predicting the behavior of granular and porous materials as well as the system they form or interact through efficient and accurate numerical models, ranging from granular scale all the way to the field scale.

Recent research topics include:

  • Discrete element modeling of deformable-irregular granular materials
  • Image-based characterization and modeling of biocementated geomaterials
  • Risk assessment of earthquake-induced liquefaction hazards
  • Multiphysics modeling of fluid-infiltrated porous material
  • Machine learning and data analytics in geomechanics
