Advanced numerical modelling in geotechnical engineering

Discover the ‘ten steps to better numerical modelling’ at this webinar launching CIRIA’s new good practice guide on ‘The management of advanced numerical modelling in geotechnical engineering (C791)’.

Numerical modelling is now routinely carried out in geotechnical engineering. Producing a numerical model is not straightforward and if not used properly can be dangerous. However, if used with skill and care there can be enormous benefits.

This guide has been written for those who commission and manage numerical modelling, not specifically those who undertake it. The aim is to provide a framework for those who oversee the process, provide the information needed for this task and use the results of the numerical modelling.

Why attend
Industry and academia will learn the ‘ten steps to better numerical modelling’ from the guide’s authors.

Understand what numerical modelling is and why numerical models should be used
in geotechnical engineering.
Identify what information that the project manager needs to assemble, and the
processes that need to be put in place for a successful outcome.
Discover how to produce a reliable numerical model and ensure that maximum
benefit can be obtained from it.
Earn valuable CPD.

Who should attend
Individuals responsible for commissioning and managing numerical modelling including clients, infrastructure managers and owners, tier 1 contractors, specialist ground engineering contractors, and consultants.
