Manufacturing and sensing of environmental biotoxins
Soil and rock formations are typically composed of layers of materials with varying strength, as well as joints and fractures.
Our research is studying the damage probability of deeply buried protective structures against earth-penetration weapons based on random field theory, experimental studies and numerical simulations that consider the inherently heterogeneous nature of earth materials.
New design methods for deeply buried protective structures based on:
