Research Fellow, Faculty of Engineering
John de Bono studied Civil Engineering as an undergraduate at the University of Nottingham, before completing a PhD in Soil Mechanics at the Nottingham Centre for Geomechanics. His PhD focused on investigating the behaviour of both sand and cemented sand under high pressures, and understanding the effects of particle crushing (Discrete Element Modelling of Cemented Sand and Particle Crushing at High Pressures, 2013. PhD Thesis, University of Nottingham, UK).
John has since taught basic and intermediate Geotechnics to 1st and 3rd year Civil Engineering students respectively, before moving to his position as Research Fellow.
John's current research focuses on the numerical modelling of soil; particularly the use of the Discrete Element Mehtod (DEM) to explore the fractal crushing of granular soils, and the underlying micro mechanics behind critical state soil mechanics.
