students working with Dr. Rowe are conducting research in geotechnical and
geoenvironmental engineering with particular emphasis on the development of
design concepts, computer modelling, laboratory testing and field monitoring.
The geoenvironmental work includes the examination of clay, geosynthetic clay
and geomembrane (plastic) liners, primary and secondary leachate collection
systems (both granular and geosynthetic), contaminant migration through soil
and fractured rock. The geotechnical work is focussed on the behaviour of
reinforced soil structures (embankments and walls).
Available topics for MESc or PhD candidates include (but are not limited to):
