CE-WP09: Numerical Simulation in Geotechnics and Tunneling Ruhr-Universität Bochum
This tutorial provides an overview of the most important aspects of realistic numerical simulations of tunnel excavation using the Finite Element Method including staged excavation processes and support measures.
Students acquire knowledge in fundamentals of the finite element method in the modelling, design and control for geotechnical structures and tunneling problems, as well as in effective methodologies to generate proper models to predict soil-structure interactions by performing nonlinear analysis.
Fundamental knowledge in soil mechanics and FEM
