Dr Andrea Diambra


As a geotechnical engineer I am interested in many problems related to the behaviour of soils both natural and artificially reinforced. As an active member of the Cabot Institute, I am also interested in research programmes to tackle the challenges of uncertain environmental change. My current research activities include: - advanced laboratory testing on the behaviour of both natural and reinforced soil - development of constitutive models for both natural and reinforced soil and implemetation in FE code - fibre reinforced soil - crushing of natural soil - static and dynamic behaviour of pile in soft rocks such as chalk or mudstones
