Welcome to the Institute for Geotechnical Engineering of the Leibniz University Hannover
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Achmus, Executive Director

Central questions of current research at the institute are the bearing behaviour of foundation elements of offshore wind energy converters under cyclic loading, the interaction of earth-buried pipelines with the surrounding soil and the design of salt caverns for oil and gas storage.

Teaching at the IGtH comprises the whole variety of soil and rock mechanics and foundation engineering and tunneling in several courses.
