Prior to EURO:TUN 2013 , a joint workshop featuring recent advances in the research on tunneling and subsurface engineering performed in the collaborative research center SFB837 (Ruhr University Bochum), the Innovation and Knowledge Center at Cambridge University (UK) and the College of Civil Engineering at Tongji University (China) will be organized. This workshop will be held at Ruhr University Bochum on Tuesday, April 16, 2013.
For further information please view the Flyer.

EURO:TUN 2013 will be held at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, on April 17th -19th, 2013. The conference aims to provide a forum for scientists, developers and engineers to review and discuss the latest advances in numerical models and computational methods and application concepts for the design, construction and maintenance of tunnels and underground facilities. Conference topics cover current challanges in
  • spatial and temporal discretization strategies for static and dynamic numerical analyses at various scales (finite ele- ment, boundary element, particle finite element, discrete element methods, mesh-free and hybrid methods)
  • advanced(multi-phase,multi-scale)constitutivemodelsforgeo- logical materials and materials used for supporting measures
  • model identification and sensitivity analysis
  • computer aided process control
  • computational methods in ground exploration
  • computationallifecyclemanagement,lifetimeassessment, smart tunnels and embedded monitoring
  • logistics modeling and data management
  • softcomputing,visualization,dataminingandexpertsystems
  • uncertainty modeling and risk analysis
  • other related topics

EURO:TUN 2013 is a follow-up conference after the second successful conference EURO:TUN 2009 held in Bochum, September 9-11th 2009 and the first successful conference EURO:TUN 2007 held in Vienna, August 27-29th 2007.

EURO:TUN 2013 is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community in Computational Methods in Applied Science (ECCOMAS).
