Soil Mechanics

Research is going on in the following areas:

Methods to increase the comfort and availability of gravel roads - Mine tailing dams design and construction short and long term function - New deposition technique for finely grounded waste rock - Use of scrap tyres in earth work application - Environmental assessment of the use of industrial by products - Mechanical properties of sulphide rich soils - Environmental impact of fills of sulphide rich soils - Mechanical behaviour of pellets (LKAB) - Swedish Hydropowert Center - Inner erosion of dams - Stability of tailings dams - Mechanical properties of snow

With focus on Soil and Rock

A study path event for our current and potential students on the Master Programme in Civil Engineering for the specialization in soil and rock was held with invited companies.
