The research developed in the Laboratory of GeoMechanics takes place in the general context of environmental geomechanics. The main objectives are to focus on the deep understanding of soil and rock behaviour when submitted to complex and coupled environmental (mechanical, hydraulic, thermal, chemical ...) loadings. The fundamental comprehension of the geomechanical processes is based on laboratory experiments on soils and rocks. A three-part approach (experimental, constitutive and numerical) is the basement of our work. Those fundamental developments are applied-oriented in geotechnics and geomechanics. Our achievements or undergoing researches are mainly dedicated to: - Unsaturated soil and rock mechanics - Soil improvement through lime treatment - Shallow geothermal energy systems - Gas transfers in argillaceous materials - Soil-atmosphere interactions
