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