The following “planned activities” are proposed by the TC206:-
The timeframe for this is 3 months
A developing area is real time back analysis using Bayesian methods to automate the redesign process. Procedures need to be developed and tested.
The Objective 4 identifies some of the other TC’s to interact with.The Chair/members of TC206 are individually interacting with the relevant TC’s and report back to the whole TC. From those contacts a proposal for a joint meeting is developed taking place at a ISSMGE conference.
The deliverables include:-
Objective 1 deliverables - An active TC206 group and clarification on ID / OM with a web site. – 3 months
Objective 2 deliverables – A coordinated approach to OM through different guides and codes. The redrafting of the Eurocode is in progress. The OM aspects will be disseminated - 6 months.
Objective 3 deliverable - Joint ISSMGE Conferences with other TC particularly on back analysis. - The ISSMGE 2021 will be a key target to link with other TC’s.
Objective 4 deliverable – A contractual framework for the use of OM by industry. The first step in to identify key contractors and clients. 3 months – a contractual framework would take about a year.
