Uchida Research Group

Numerical and physical modeling of multiphysics problems in geotechnical engineering


This is a Geotechnical research group led by Assoc. Prof. Shun Uchida at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Our research focuses on multiphysics problems in the field of geotechnical engineering such as energy geotechnics, computational geomechanics and environmental geotechnics. More specifically, these include coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical modeling of geomaterials, unsaturated soil behavior, solute transport in multiphase deformable porous media, submarine landslide and (bio)chemically-induced deterioration of geomaterials. Please visit our Research page to learn more about our ongoing projects.
