Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering IX
Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering IX contains 204 technical and scientific papers presented at the 9th European Conference on Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering (NUMGE2018, Porto, Portugal, 25—27 June 2018). The papers cover a wide range of topics in the field of computational geotechnics, providing an overview of recent developments on scientific achievements, innovations and engineering applications related to or employing numerical methods. They deal with subjects from emerging research to engineering practice, and are grouped under the following themes:
Constitutive modelling and numerical implementation
Finite element, discrete element and other numerical methods. Coupling of diverse methods
Reliability and probability analysis
Large deformation – large strain analysis
Artificial intelligence and neural networks
Ground flow, thermal and coupled analysis
Earthquake engineering, soil dynamics and soil-structure interactions
Application of numerical methods in the context of the Eurocodes
Shallow and deep foundations
Slopes and cuts
Supported excavations and retaining walls
Embankments and dams
Tunnels and caverns (and pipelines)
Ground improvement and reinforcement
Offshore geotechnical engineering
Propagation of vibrations
Following the objectives of previous eight thematic conferences, (1986 Stuttgart, Germany; 1990 Santander, Spain; 1994 Manchester, United Kingdom; 1998 Udine, Italy; 2002 Paris, France; 2006 Graz, Austria; 2010 Trondheim, Norway; 2014 Delft, The Netherlands), Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering IX updates the state-of-the-art regarding the application of numerical methods in geotechnics, both in a scientific perspective and in what concerns its application for solving practical boundary value problems. The book will be much of interest to engineers, academics and professionals involved or interested in Geotechnical Engineering.
