Welcome to the Rock Mechanics Group

Rock Mechanics Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign studies thermo-hydro-mechanical processes and fracturing of rock.  Novel experimental techniques are utilized for characterization of rock behavior  with applications to geo-energy projects, such as CO2 and nuclear waste storage, hydraulic fracturing, and enhanced geothermal energy extraction. On this website you can find an information about our research, facilities, current events, publications, and group members. Undergraduate and graduate coursework descriptions are also available.
