Research in Geomechanics and Petrophysics is based on the idea of understanding the relationships between measured properties and the reasons that govern the expression of those properties.
The laboratory possesses a range of experimental equipment and apparatus for making various direct measurements including stress change regimes, permeability, magnetic properties and rock textures. The lab also makes use of in-house and commercial software for geomechanical simulation studies. In-house software development allows investigations to continue beyond the limits of commercial software e.g. integrated suite of pore-scale applications that calculate macroscopic rock properties.
