New guidance: The management of advanced numerical modelling in geotechnical modelling (C791)

CIRIA is pleased to announce the launch of new good practice guidance The management of advanced numerical modelling in geotechnical engineering (C791).

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

The new CIRIA guide has been written for those who commission and manage numerical modelling, not specifically those who undertake it. It provides a framework for those who oversee the process, provide the information needed for this task and use the results of the numerical modelling. The guide aims to outline the information that the project manager (PM) needs to assemble, and the processes that need to be put in place for a successful outcome: the 'ten steps to better numerical modelling'.
