TC104 Physical Modelling

Physical Modelling in Geotechnics

To disseminate and develop knowledge and practice within the area of physical modelling in geotechnical engineering by establishing working groups to:

  • Promote the sharing of resources for teaching that uses physical modelling
  • Develop standardised and sustainable equipment and sensors for physical modelling
  • Produce a newsletter for general dissemination and communication on physical modelling

To ensure that the outcomes of the working groups above are captured and disseminated via guidelines and technical recommendations.

To promote, coordinate and provide advice and support to hosts of regional conferences, Asiafuge and Eurofuge, as well as the quadrennial international TC104 conference.

To establish a working group to promote the use of geotechnical physical modelling in engineering practice with potential activities including case studies, mini lectures and online resources.
