The Earthquake Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Group (EDPMG) is focusing on fundamental and applied research in the field of earthquake engineering. The core research of the group can be broadly divided into following fields:

Soil-structure Interaction (SSI)

  • Experimental model testing of soil structure systems
  • Analytical and numerical analyses
  • Mechanical interface for representing SSI 
  • Nonlinear pile dynamics

Base Isolation

  • Experimental and numerical modelling
  • Theoretical modelling

Resilient structures / Programmable structures
