The management of advanced numerical modelling in geotechnical engineering: good practice (C791D)

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. It outlines the information that the project manager needs to assemble, and the processes that need to be put in place for a successful outcome: the 'ten steps to better numerical modelling'.

By following this guide, those producing a numerical model will be given the quality of information and the time needed to successfully produce a model that can be relied upon by the design team as a whole. Those managing the process have a vital role to play in producing a reliable numerical model and ensuring that maximum benefit can be obtained from it.
