Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering

From the ground motion to the dynamic properties of geomaterial, from theoretical model to laboratory testing, we have deep interest in the soil dynamics and earthquake engineering. Our researchers have various outcomes that provide more insights for the engineering practices and natural hazards.
