Micro-mechanical Behaviour of Collapsible soils
This project will build off a number of previous studies that have investigated the behaviour of collapsible soils, which are soils that exhibit a relatively quick change in volume (typically over a few hours). Through this these soils can cause significant problems to any infrastructure built on or it a collapsible deposit. This project will examine the behaviour of collapsible soils, to understand the contribution of micro-mechanical behaviour has on the collapse potential. This will use both laboratory and numerical approaches to develop our current understanding and from how we can better engineering such soils.
