José Antonio Fernández Merodo


His work focuses on the analysis of the tenso-deformational behavior of geomaterials and geostructures, simulating the temporal evolution of terrain deformations and deepening knowledge of the thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical processes that control it. Terrain deformations are calculated using advanced mathematical, constitutive and numerical models that are calibrated using in-situ and remote control techniques in the case of landslides, subsidences, etc.
