Research Topics

Graduate 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):
