Engineering Geology & Hydrogeology

Current research activities in the engineering geology group of the Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen - an overview:

Abrasivity and Excavatability


Abrasivity testing (Cerchar & LCPC Test); drill and blast, roadheader cutting, TBM boring; performance and wear analysis and prognosis.

Tunnelling and Underground Excavation


Stability problems, rock mass characterization and classification. Especially: processes of weathering, swelling behaviour and problems induced by high insitu-stress conditions (see also next topic).

Characterization of Rock And Soil Properties


Rock and soil testing in the laboratory; investigations on non-durable and swelling rock material. Application in tunnelling, rock engineering and landslides.



In rock and soil - causes, processes and mitigation measures; development of a continuous 3D monitoring system with time domain reflectometry.

Hydrogeology and Geothermal Energy

Water Fountain

As per recent agreement (Jan 2008) between LMU & TUM research and teaching in hydrogeology and the hydrological side of geothermal energy will be focused at the TUM. More details to follow!

General Topics


Sedimentology: Mapping assignments of the Bavarian Geological Survey; Tectonics and geomechanics of the Northern Calcareous Alps; Structure and development of the Bavarian Forest.
