This course deals with the analytical and digital modelling tools used specifically in geoengineering. The use of these tools is taught through a detailed study and calculations for underground and surface structures with complex geometry as well as a modelisation of continuous and discontinuous rock masses.
Program and content:
Emphasis is placed on numeric methods concerning stress and strain, which is based on the assimilation of land to a continuous environment and, in particular, on the finite element method. An example is dealt with “by hand”, then with the aid of CESAR-LCPC software.
Description and operationnal verbs
