Engineering Geological Characterisation of Fault Zones

Project: Research area

Project Details


This project focuses on the evolution of fault zones based on studies in drill holes and tunnels as well as surface exposures. Special emphasis is given on the kinematic analysis and the properties of fault rocks, and the neo-formation of clay minerals related to the circulation of low-temperature fluids within the fault zones.
