Numerical modelling

In big cities the construction of new tunnels in close proximity to existing ones is unavoidable given the densely and growing occupation of the subsoil. The interaction between tunnels in such conditions is well identified in the literature and has been thoroughly investigated in the past. However, most of those studies are focused on the effect of the...

The evolution of numerical modelling in rock mechanics has made possible a more realistic representation of the behaviour of rock masses, and a more reliable prediction of the response of rock engineering structures. Discontinuum modelling techniques, namely the discrete elemen...
