PBS Program Name:
ARC 18/19 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Projects
Grant Activity:
A new framework for large-scale dynamic geotechnical simulations
Purpose:
This project aims to develop an accurate and efficient simulation framework that allows the consideration of realistic discrete behaviour in geomechanical models without the computational overheads of current models. New computational methods and open-source simulation tools will be developed which will enable the efficient and accurate dynamic simulation of large-scale problems in geomechanics, problems that had formerly been intractable because of their computational size. The unique combination of discrete and continuum methods will allow the economical solution of a range of important geotechnical problems such as the accurate prediction of dynamic effects due to tunnelling, underground workings and mining activities. The outcomes will lead to safer and more economic construction methods and a more accurate assessment of the environmental effects.
