Faculty Research Groups

Geotechnical Engineering

  • Geotechnical Lifelines Group (O'Rourke, Stewart)
    The Cornell Large-scale Lifelines Testing Facility is a unique, resource for research, education, and outreach focused on underground lifeline response to large ground deformation and the seismic performance of highly ductile structures using advanced materials and construction.
     
  • McLaskey Group
    McLaskey's research uses the analysis of waves in order to study material behavior such as earthquakes, faulting, friction, impact, and fracture.

Structural Engineering

  • Cornell Fracture Group (Warner)
    The Cornell Fracture Group conducts both scientific and engineering research aimed at understanding and predicting the deformation and failure of structures. 
     
  • Earls Group
    The Earls Group is concerned with developing novel mathematical and computational approaches that enable new understanding concerning the actual condition, and future performance of complex natural and engineered systems. 
     
  • Grigoriu Group
    Grigoriu's research focuses on random vibration, stochastic calculus, stochastic differential equations, stochastic partial differential equations, numerical methods for solving stochastic problems, probabilistic models for microstructures, wind/earthquake engineering, and Monte Carlo simulation.
     
  • Hover Group
    Hover specializes in concrete development, and is especially interested in the analysis and rehabilitation of deteriorated concrete.
     
  • Kammer Group
    Kammer is interested in the mechanics of dynamic and transient phenomena leading to failure of materials and structures.
     
  • McLaskey Group
    McLaskey's research uses the analysis of waves in order to study material behavior such as earthquakes, faulting, friction, impact, and fracture.
