TC103 Numerical Methods in Geomechanics is one of the technical committees of International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). TC103 aims to provide a forum for all interested members of ISSMGE to explore the using of computational tools and developing of advanced numerical methods to solve problems relevant to soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering. TC103 will deal with the following important technical issues:
a) Constitutive modeling, calibrations of complex soil behavior and engineering problems such as instability, strain localization and progressive failure of soil or rock structures;
b) Advanced procedures for model validation and verification;
c) The development of accurate, robust and efficient numerical methods for applications of varying needs;
d) Modeling of coupled phenomena that are useful across geotechnical engineering, rock engineering, petroleum engineering, geothermal engineering;
e) Assisting and promotion of exchange of knowledge between the academia and practicing engineers.
