Research project GeomInt

The IfG participates in the project GeomInt, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

GeomInt stands for Geomechanical Integrity of host- and barrier-rocks. The goal is to carry out a realistic analysis of the creation and development of discontinuities in underground rocks, for example in salt, clay or crystalline rocks. Further information can be found on the project website GeomInt.
