Michael Riemer is an Adjunct Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. Riemer’s research focuses on the evaluation of soil properties both in the laboratory and in situ, and the prediction of soil response to static and dynamic loading of different types. He teaches the graduate-level Advanced Geotechnical Testing and Design (CE273) and assists with the undergraduate course Geotechnical Engineering (CE175), and works directly with students at all levels with independent experimental research in the geotechnical laboratories.
Ph.D., Geotechnical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, 1992
M.S., Geotechnical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, 1987
B.S., Civil Engineering, Virginia Tech, 1986
Riemer’s research focuses on evaluating the development of porewater pressures in saturated soils during seismic loading and the effects of these pore pressures on other engineering properties, including the assessment and modeling of liquefaction flow failures. His research areas include static and dynamic evaluation of soil properties, constitutive behavior of sands, and the liquefaction of unusual soil.
