Research & Developments

  • LSS aims to develop a strong and active research and development department besides its core business. The group experts with advanced educational degree have carried out numerous research projects individually, some in collaboration with universities and research institutions.
    Of these projects, over 40 papers have been published in well-known professional journals and international conferences.
    The list of published papers is presented herein. LSS is very keen to look into the projects by paying attention to R&D field of leanings and share it with the Geotechnical and Retrofitting Engineering Societies.
