Advertising two new PhD positions in geomechanical modelling and alpine hydrogeology

The Chair of Engineering Geology at ETH Zurich invites applications for two PhD positions in the areas of geomechanical modelling, and alpine hydrogeology. These projects form part of a collaborative effort aimed at gaining insight into the manner in which the generation of bedrock fractures due to large scale topographic changes controls groundwater flow dynamics […]


Just add water: How to break large rock beams with a few drips

(*pun intended) The failure of natural rock slopes, or engineered bedrock structures (e.g. tunnels, caverns, mines, and excavations) is closely tied to the progressive fracturing of intact rock. The physics of this process is, however, complicated – and even in engineered materials such as glass and steel, the interaction of conditions driving the propagation of cracks is […]
