RESEARCH AND INTERESTS
  • Stress-strain conditions in the NGI type direct simple shear test,
  • Fundamental aspects of the cyclic and dynamic behavior of clays, silts and sands under uniform and irregular cyclic loads,
  • Small-strain cyclic and dynamic behavior of soils,
  • Liquefaction mechanism using nonlinear computer models and case history studies,
  • Behavior of soil-nailed excavations during earthquakes using centrifuge modelling,
  • Development of geotechnical site data bases and their utilization in seismic microzoning using GIS.
