The symposium combines invited presentations, and contributions by ZSOIL users and others. It has been taking place every year in late summer over the past fifteen years, at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, in Lausanne and newly at Haute Ecole d’Ingénierie et d’Architecture de Fribourg.
2020 SYMPOSIUM TOPICS
Numerical simulation in geomechanics, constitutive aspects, soil-structure
interaction and associated structural analysis with emphasis on present and future engineering practice: theory, applications, case studies, failure analyses, optimisation, probabilistic approaches.
CALL FOR PAPERS
5 lines abstracts of papers on topics linked to NUMERICS IN GEOTECHNICS & STRUCTURES, state of the art contributions on dry or partially saturated rock or soil, soil-structure interaction, interfaces, thermal effects, ultimate load evaluation, safety assessment, optimization, can be submitted any time. Notification of acceptance will be given on/before June 30th.2020 . Presentations in final form will be due 22.8.2020, for distribution to participants.
Please submit abstracts to: email@example.com.

16.00-17.15 Public presentation of latest ZSOIL.PC version (free entry)
17.30-19.00 Apéritif dinatoire, sponsored by Geomod Ltd & Zace Services Ltd
Engineers and developers interested or confronted with the need to perform accurate numerical simulations or optimizations for complex underground , above ground or combined constructions have an opportunity to exchange experience, see state of the art presentations of recent case studies and get a comprehensive introduction to numerical simulations in 2D or 3D, in particular with ZSOIL.PC, in dry or partially saturated rock or soil, with full structural capabilities, soil-structure interaction, interfaces, thermal effects, ultimate load evaluation, continuous safety assessment, including creep, swelling, dilation, dynamics etc.
The meeting will be an opportunity for people involved in numerics in geotechnics and structures to exchange experience and ideas.
