Geotechnical Engineering group at UNH offer a variety of geotech related courses and research areas from field to laboratory testing and from numerical to physical modeling. Exceptional equipment and facilities provide a unique opportunities fro learning and research for undergraduate and graduate students.
Civil Engineering Materials research at UNH focuses on asphalt and portland cement concrete pavements, specifically with material characterization and testing in the laboratory. The Materials group performs work with recycled materials, including reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) and recycled portland cement concrete. These include laboratory performance evaluation as well as performance of pavements in service.
The Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering group focuses efforts on field monitoring of systems and their representation in numerical and/or spatial models. Ongoing research includes: stormwater management, remote sensing, adaptation to climate change, and stream restoration, to name a few.
