Solid and fluid bodies are the main natural components in the world. Rock, soil, and fluid construct the hydrogeology and engineering geology fields.
The interactive phenomena between the coupled solid and fluid bodies are complex and their mechanisms play an important role for these disciplines.
Therefore, the investigation and realization of the coupled interactive phenomena between solid and fluid bodies can enhance the scientific development and engineering applications in the hydrogeology and engineering geology fields.
The main topics in Geohydraulics Research Group (GHRG) include:
1. Theory improvements and basic investigations of the coupled solid and fluid theory,
2. The applications and case studies of the coupled solid and fluid theory, and
3. The investigations of the mechanisms and phenomena in the system of earthquakes and hydrology.
Except for the investigations in the coupled solid and fluid systems, GHRG also involves the field of groundwater exploitation and management. The basic hydrogeology investigations and modeling technique improvements can help Taiwan’s government dealing with the topics of groundwater exploitation and management. The developing techniques can also help Taiwan’s industries in hydraulic and environmental fields connecting the international industries.
