Dr Abbas Taheri has over 18 years of industry, research and teaching experience in the field of geotechnical engineering and rock mechanics.
Dr Taheri earned a Ph.D. in geotechnical engineering from Yokohama National University, Japan in 2008. His PhD research project has internationally acknowledged as an outstanding research work and has been awarded a runner up certificate (Proxime Accessit) of "ISRM Rocha Medal 2010" from International Society of Rock Mechanics (ISRM). In 2008 he awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) and appointed as a postdoc researcher at Tokyo University of Science. In 2011 he jointed the University of Adelaide.
Dr Taheri’s research interest is in the area of rock and soil material testing, modelling and characterization and also stability analysis of surface and underground excavations and exploration boreholes. He has developed an in-situ triaxial compression test method and successfully measured stress-strain relations of rock mass in deep ground for the first time in the world. He has performed extensive researches to measure and simulate geomaterial properties. He has developed and verified a new rock mass classification system (SSR system). This innovative method enabled engineers to design large-scale rock slopes with a rating system without using sophisticated design software. He has undertaken/is currently undertaking several research projects related to borehole stability, geomaterial properties in shallow and deep ground and soil improvement methods which the outcomes will provide the tools for more efficient, safer deep rock mining and improve the stability of geotechnical structures.
