TC 103 on Numerical Methods in Geomechanics is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for Case Histories on applications of numerical analysis to the design, study, or back analysis of case histories that will be published in ISSMGE’s International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories (https://www.geocasehistoriesjournal.org/). Well documented case histories combining numerical analysis before or during the construction of a project with monitoring and performance data are welcome. Submissions may consider, but are not limited to: 

  • Comparison of numerical predictions and in situ measurements of carefully monitored case histories
  • Data assimilation or inverse analysis during construction, and applications to hazard prediction or risk management
  • Successful applications of numerical analysis to reduce costs, solve or prevent design and construction problems
  • Numerical analysis of new design or construction technologies applied to recent projects

Focus should be on applications of numerical techniques rather than novelty of the method of analysis.

Interested authors are encouraged to submit a 300-word abstract by 15 July 2020 to one of Guest Editors.

Authors will be notified shortly after about the acceptance of their abstract. Submission date of full papers is 15 December 2020. Please consult the Journal’s submission guidelines https://www.geocasehistoriesjournal.org/pub/about/guidelines before you submit your paper. All papers will go through a peer-review process. Publication of this special issue is expected in June 2021.
