Short Workshop: Stability Analysis in Geotechnical Problems


Organized by the collaborative research center SFB 837 "Interaction modeling in mechanized tunneling", the short workshop on "Stability Analysis in Geotechnical Problems" will be held at the Ruhr-University Bochum on July 10th, 2017.

This workshop mainly aims to give an overview on the recent advances and new developments in stability analysis for geotechnical applications. The mostly referred solutions for determination of failure load such as limit equilibrium, limit load theorem of classical plasticity and upper and lower bound analyses based on finite element method will be discussed. The use of the classical as well as modern techniques to perform stability analysis for bench mark geotechnical applications including footing bearing capacity, slope and tunnel face stability analyses are in the main focus of this workshop.

Participation is free of charge. Guests are welcome!
