Engineering geology is part of the Applied Geosciences at KIT. It stands for geological R&D in civil and mining enginering and for energy, evironmental and infrastructural Technologies. Engineering geology represents the link between geosciences and Engineering sciences.
 
Our Topics of engineering geology are soil, rock and rock mass classification, geotechnical properties of clays for sealing, remediation of contaminated Underground and shallow geothermics. In recent years, a pronounced emphasis was placed on the field of georisks and mass movements.
Close collaboraion between geology and Engineering geology is demonstrated by the common national commitee "Engineering Geology"  of  the Deutsche Geologische Gesellschaft (DGG, German Geolgical Society) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Geotechnik (DGGT, German Geotechnical Society).

Buch Blum
New Book! Thermal Use of Shallow Groundwater

The book provides the state of the art of the thermal use of shallow groundwater.
Details of the available analytical models as well as numerical techniques for open and closed geothermal systems are given including MATLAB® codes. Example problems and their solutions are presented by case studies.
