Activities

The activities and the services of the IfG GmbH relate to the complex geomechanical analysis and prediction of interacting rock stresses and deformations during the construction of underground openings and during their long-term usage, particularly in salt rock formations with different saliferous strata - under consideration of their special non linear material behavior.

There are four components:

 

  • Rock behaviour
  • Formation behaviour
  • Rock mechanical modelling
  • Dimensioning and expertise
