|Sustainable Geotechnical Infrastructure Group (SGIG) Research Program:
The main focus of SGIG is improving the sustainability of today`s infrastructure. SGIG places a strong emphasis on the sustainable development of geotechnical and transportation infrastructure. SGIG conducts multidisciplinary research that combines knowledge and expertise from geotechnical, geological, environmental engineering, and environmental science disciplines. Current research activities are mainly focused on the following fields: (1) Improvement of the sustainability of geotechnical structures; (2) environmental suitability of geotechnical structures built with waste materials and industrial byproducts; (3) remediation of contaminated soils with industrial byproducts; (4) characterization of shale media for nuclear waste disposal; and (5) improvement of the quality of the mechanistic-empirical pavement design approach.
