Geomechanics & Geotechnical Systems (GGS): The Geomechanics and Geotechnical Systems (GGS) program element supports research in geotechnical engineering, foundation engineering, soil and rock mechanics and dynamics, underground construction, and mining engineering. Support is given for research that will increase geotechnical knowledge for foundations, slopes, excavations and other geostructures, including soil and rock improvement technologies and reinforcement systems; constitutive modeling and verification in geomechanics; transferability of laboratory results to field scale; and non-destructive, remote and in-situ evaluation of soil and rock properties.
