Geotechnical Engineering Research Group

This group research activities and interests range from foundation for infrastructures, mitigation of natural hazards especially earthquakes, soil behaviors, slope stability, earth dams, marine geotechnics, to soft tunneling. The main research theme isĀ  Optimum and Reliable Geotechnical Engineering Solutions for Construction Industry. Several research examples which are currently undertaken include:

Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering
Currently, the group is developing two (2) earthquake hazard maps, which include:

    • Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering
      Currently, the group is developing two (2) earthquake hazard maps, which include:

1. Earthquake hazard map for Sumatera Island.
2. Earthquake hazard map for Indonesia
Several members of the group are involved in developing the Hazard Map for the Indonesian Code (SNI-2002)

  • Design for Foundations of Long Bridges
    The research group was involved in the study of Java-Sumatera bridge, Java-Madura bridge, Sula bridge, Soekarno bridge, etc.
