and Analytical Modeling
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.
Integration schemes for constitutive equations, nonlinear solution techniques,
and finite elasto-plastic deformations.
of Granular Materials
mechanics of granular materials subjected to very low effective stresses,
which has included two sets of in-space experiments on board the Space
