Eijnden, A.P. van den


Bram is Assistant Professor of Geotechnical Uncertainty in the Geo-Engineering Section. His research is related to numerical modelling of the behaviour of heterogeneous soils, geotechnical uncertainty quantification and geotechnical reliability.

Bram graduated in 2010 from Delft University of Technology with an MSc degree in Applied Earth Science and obtained a joint PhD degree from Université Grenoble Alpes (France) and Université de Liège (Belgium) in 2015 on the thesis Multiscale modelling of the hydromechanical behaviour of argillaceous rocks. He joined TU Delft in 2015 as a post-doc researcher on the Reliable Dykes project, working on numerical methods for geotechnical uncertainty quantification and reliability analysis, before taking up the position of assistant professor in 2020.


Bram’s main research topics are:

  • Multiscale finite element modelling of hydromechanical behaviour of soils and rocks
  • Geotechnical uncertainty quantification
  • Geotechnical reliability analysis
  • CIE4366 – Numerical Modelling for GeoEngineering
  • CIE4395 – Risk and Variability in GeoEngineering
  • Reliable Dykes: Reliability-Based Geomechanical Assessment Tools for Dykes and Embankments in Delta Areas
  • SOFTTOP: Investigating heterogeneous soft top soils for wave propagation, cyclic degradation and liquefaction potential
