Conference Topics

EURO:TUN 2013 will be concerned with latest advances in numerical models and computational methods and application concepts for the design, construction and maintenance of tunnels and underground facilities. Topics to be addressed include:
  • spatial and temporal discretization strategies for static and dynamic numerical analyses at various scales (finite element, boundary element, particle finite element, discrete element methods, mesh-free and hybrid methods)
  • advanced(multi-phase, multi-scale)constitutivemodelsforgeological materials and materials used for supporting measures
  • model identification and sensitivity analysis
  • computer aided process control
  • computational methods in ground exploration
  • computational life cycle management, life time assessment, smart tunnels and embedded monitoring
  • logistics modeling and data management
  • softcomputing, visualization, data mining and expert systems
  • uncertainty modeling and risk analysis
  • other related topics
