Conference Themes

The Scientific and Organizing Committees of NUMGE2018 invite geotechnical engineering researchers and practical engineers to submit abstracts on scientific achievements, innovations and engineering applications related to or employing numerical methods.

Abstracts on all subjects concerning the general theme of the conference are acceptable.

Regarding the theoretical themes, the following are pointed out, among others:

● Constitutive modelling and numerical implementation
● 
Numerical algorithms and theoretical aspects
● 
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
● 
Unsaturated soil mechanics
● 
Earthquake engineering, soil dynamics and soil-structure interactions
● 
Rock mechanics

 

Abstracts on practical applications are welcome, namely related to the following types of works:

● 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
●
