NYU geotechnical group is widely recognized as the leading authority in several areas of geotechnical research including physical modeling of soil structure interaction and multi phase flow using transparent soils, behavior piling made of recycled polymers, micro piling, and ground improvement using soil nails. In addition, recent research included seismic earth pressure, remediation of contaminated soils, sensing, earth pressure against rigidly framed structures, and penetration mechanics of fast traveling projectiles and torpedo anchors.
