CV of Prof. Heinz Konietzky
Prof. Heinz Konietzky holds the Chair for Rock Mechanics at the Geotechnical Institute at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany and has a background in geotechnical engineering and engineering seismology. He has longstanding experience in using continuum and discontinuum mechanical approaches to model HTM-coupled problems in geotechnics, but also to some extend in material sciences and process engineering. He is also responsible for the rock mechanical laboratory, where they perform static and dynamic HTM-coupled tests on rock specimen. Besides fundamental research his team is involved in dimensioning and back analysis for big geotechnical projects, like radioactive waste storage facilities, tunnels, mines, foundations or deep geothermal projects (EGS).
