Research Teaching


Professor Stein Sture's research interests are in the areas Geomechanics, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural and Solid Mechanics.

photoExperimental and Analytical Modeling
Studies of constitutive and fracture behavior, and stability properties of geomaterials, such as cohesionless and cohesive soils, lunar and Mars regolith, and rocks, and cementitious materials, such as concrete.

photoComputational Mechanics
Integration schemes for constitutive equations, nonlinear solution techniques, and finite elasto-plastic deformations.

photoMechanics of Granular Materials
The mechanics of granular materials subjected to very low effective stresses, which has included two sets of in-space experiments on board the Space Shuttle.
