The Group of Engineering Geosciences and Geomechanics (EGG) in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde includes 11 academics, 8 postdoctoral researchers and ~30 research students. The research focus of the group is on the hydro-mechanical behaviour of geomaterials across a wide range of scales, including microscale (discrete particle/aggregate level), mesoscale (‘continuum’ level), and macroscale (structural, geotechnical, and geological systems.
