Richard Allen (Dick) Plumb
My primary research interest is to understand and predict how rocks deform in response to loads imposed by drilling and extracting fluids from reservoirs located deep in sedimentary basins. Currently, I am collaborating with Research Professor Jack Germaine, Tufts Advanced Geomaterials Laboratory (TAG Lab) to better understand relationships between anisotropic mechanical properties, mineral composition and texture of clay-rich soils as they evolve during consolidation to high effective stresses, research that spans the domains of soil mechanics and rock mechanics. I want to work with students to help them communicate their research results to both the soil and rock mechanics disciplines.
