Geological testing laboratory
The UNIVERSITY OF BARCELONA (UB) has a research center called Geomodels where they investigate different geological processes using new technologies. The laboratory equipment manages to simulate, through the controlled movement of different actuators, ground movements on a reduced scale to extrapolate the results to a real scale.
The laboratory works in a multidisciplinary way, where the CIM UPC team has a very important role; to model geologic processes that work with geology, engineering, and mathematical modeling methods. The results are both scientific (advance in the knowledge of processes and characterization) and technological (development of work methodologies and modeling tools).
