The Section for Geotechnics and Geology is engaged in conducting research within the fields of geotechnical engineering, technical geology and Pavements.

The projects carried out by our research staff can be categorized into the three main research fields, which are further partitioned into sub-fields. Each field has its own page, containing an overview of our current activities: 

Geotechnical Engineering

  • Constitutive Modelling in Reactive Transport
  • Offshore Geotechnics 
  • Soil Mechanics
  • Soil-Structure Interaction
  • Rock Mechanics
  • Constitutive Modelling in Reactive Transport

Technical Geology

  • Sedimentary petrology
  • Petrophysics
  • Rock Physics
  • Geothermics
  • Petroleum Engineering 


  • Response Modeling
  • Inverse Analysis of Properties
  • Embedded Instrumentation

An overview of our published research may be found under Publications. Subscribe to our news updates at News, for learning about upcoming events, e.g., Ph.D. defenses and new appointments.

You can also follow our research at the DTU research database DTU Orbit, the university’s main research database.
