Geotechnics and Geohazards

The research group of Geotechnical Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is engaged in research and scientific services in determining fundamental behaviour of geotechnical materials and characterisation of their properties.

Fields of research

The group's fields of research and educations are in the areas of geohazards, soil structure interaction, soil modelling and numerical analyses, physical model testing, foundation engineering, offshore geotechnology, laboratory and field testing.

The Geotechnical research group at NTNU together with the International Centre for Geohazards (ICG) work on the assessment, prevention and mitigation of geohazards, including risks associated with landslides and mass transport in soil and rock due to rainfall, flooding, earthquakes and human intervention.

Engineering studies and NTNU

NTNU is the only university in Norway providing a complete range of advanced engineering education programmes. Together with the traditional university study areas, this creates a unique interdisciplinary learning environment. In sum, NTNU has around 40 000 students, of which about 15000 are studying engineering. The campus where this study programme is located, Gløshaugen, is conveniently located within walking distance from downtown Trondheim.
