About me

Maciej Ochmański currently holds the position of Assistant Professor in Geotechnical Engineering at the Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice, Poland. His major research interest focuses mainly on the development of advanced numerical models for Geotechnical Engineering with emphasis on the conventional and mechanized tunnelling; effects of tunnelling and auxiliary measures (e.g. ground improvement techniques) on the surrounding structures; seismic response of the geotechnical structures; constitutive modelling of geomaterials from very small to large strain level; implementation of the constitutive models in computer codes (UMAT); jet-grouting technique (e.g. prediction of the column diameter); application of the soft computing methods in geotechnical engineering.

Maciej Ochmański received his PhD from the Silesian University of Technology (2016) and the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio (2017) thanks to the double doctoral program. He has authored several dozen peer-reviewed scientific publications and has been invited to deliver lectures at 1st and 2nd Conference of Underground Constructions in Poland. Moreover, he presented his research on several national and international conferences, e.g. at the 6th International Symposium on Deformation Characteristics of Geomaterials in Buenos Aires (IS-Buenos Aires 2015), 13th International Conference “Underground Construction Prague 2016” and 3rd Eastern Tunnelling Conference in Prague. Maciej Ochmański was twice nominated by the Polish Geotechnical Society to represent Poland at 23rd and 24th European Young Geotechnical Engineers Conferences. He is a reviewer of peer-reviewed international journal of Géotechnique, Computers and Geotechnics, Soils and Foundations, Marine Georesources & Geotechnology. He is also a member of the ISSMGE, PKG, TC204 and ITA-AITES.
