Discrete element modeling of masonry structures
Mar 26, 2020 - Mar 26, 2020

The webinar will describe a promising approach which is able to represent the discrete nature of masonry by the Discrete Element Method (DEM). It will discuss the assumptions adopted and numerical implementation issues. Then several case studies of masonry structures subjected to static or earthquake loading will be presented.

The Art of Numerical Modelling in Geomechanics
Feb 27, 2020 - Feb 27, 2020

Presented by Dr. Peter A. Cundall: Numerical modeling is widely used in Geomechanics for design and diagnostic purposes, but there is an art to using the software tools correctly. It's not just a case of plugging in the data, and hitting "run". We need to understand the underlying physics, and whether the model properly represents it.

How to Create an Hybrid Mesh by Combining BlockRanger and Griddle
Dec 19, 2019 - Dec 19, 2019

The webinar shows how to generate a hybrid mesh of a tunnel system consisting of three tunnels intersecting each other by combining the use of BlockRanger and Griddle. The advantages of this type of mesh is discussed by illustrating a coupled hydro-mechanical simulation of the tunnel excavations.
