Environmental Geomechanics
Environmental Geomechanics is devoted to the understanding of the mechanical behavior of Geomaterials such as soil, rock, concrete and others under various environmental conditions.

Civil Engineering
Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings, and railways.

Civil Engineer
A Civil Engineer is a person who practices Civil Engineering. The application of planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating infrastructures while protecting the public and environmental health, as well as improving existing infrastructures that have been neglected.

Geomechanics
Geomechanics involves the study of the mechanics of soil and rock. The engineering aspects of these studies, or applied geomechanics, describe the response of the geological environment to the actions of mining.

Rock Mechanics
Rock Mechanics is a theoretical and applied science of the mechanical behavior of rock and rock masses. Rock Mechanics is that branch of mechanics concerned with the response of rock and rock masses to the force fields of their physical environment.

Soil Mechanics
Soil Mechanics is used to analyze the deformations of and flow of fluids within natural and man-made structures that are supported on or made of soil, or structures that are buried in soils.

Soil Mechanics differs from fluid mechanics and solid mechanics in the sense that soils consist of a heterogeneous mixture of fluids and particles but soil may also contain organic solids and other matter.
