5 Reasons to use Plastic Material Models in Structural Analysis

Plastic material models are still scarcely employed in structural analysis. Many engineers try to avoid the use of nonlinearity as much as they can! Nonlinear material models, contact problems, damage, acquired the fame to be features difficult to control, to … Continue reading

Simulation driven tunnel structural design

  How to calculate a tunnel Tunnel structural design implies complex calculation procedures and several uncertainties. The correct modelling of the rock load and of the soil-structure interaction requires accurate analysis of the geotechnical data. Several analytical relationships have been … Continue reading
