Abstract [en]

The "Modelling in Geotechnics" course was created in 1996 and was delivered in the final year of diploma studies in civil engineering at ETH Zürich. The principles of modelling were presented and discussed with reference to aspects of physical, constitutive and numerical modeling. This was followed by a series of applications to demonstrate that models can deliver a fast track to developing engineering judgement for promoting optimal geotechnical design, without the concomitant damage that occurs due to real failures, as long as the model is suitable and adheres to the requisite scaling laws. This course is now entitled 'Physical Modelling in Geotechnics' and has seen a significant rise in enrolment. A wide-ranging set of notes was developed at the beginning. These have since been extended, together with an in-house Geotechnical Information Platform GEOTip, which provides the virtual environment for documentation and exchange of ideas. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
