Methods in Tunnelling

We have the pleasure to announce the ECCOMAS THEMATIC CONFERENCE

Computational Methods in Tunnelling

Vienna, Austria, August 27-29, 2007

Conference Chairmen

* Josef EBERHARDSTEINER,  Vienna University of Technology, Austria
* Gernot BEER, Graz University of Technology, Austria

In recent years, Computational Methods have experienced increased
application in underground construction. Applications range from design and
prediction to the display of data using augmented virtual reality methods.
An important aspect is the realistic description of the soil/rock mass and
the materials used for support, using advanced constitutive models.
Recently, hybrid concepts aiming at an integration of advanced methods of
computational intelligence and computational mechanics are being developed
and used for the optimisation of the design and the construction processes.

EURO:TUN 2007 aims to provide a forum for scientists, developers and
engineers to review and discuss novel research findings and to assess the
suitability and robustness of advanced computational methods and models for
the design and construction of tunnels.

Conference Topics
The conference will be concerned with computer based innovative concepts and
strategies for optimised design and construction of tunnels.
Topics to be addressed are:

* spatial and temporal discretisation strategies for realistic and
efficient numerical analyses in underground engineering,
* advanced inviscid as well as time-dependent, multi-phase and
multi-scale constitutive models for materials used for the support and for
soils and jointed, swelling or squeezing rocks,
* methods for prediction of tunnel face stability,
* simulation models for shield tunnelling,
* new developments in boundary and hybrid methods,
* procedures for parameter identification,
* soft computing, visualisation, data mining, and expert systems in
* Sensitivity analysis, back analysis, and
* any other related topics

EURO:TUN 2007 is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community
on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS)  www.eccomas.org.
EURO:TUN 2007 is also an IACM Special Interest Conference. More information
