TC104 Physical Modelling in Geotechnics
Welcome to the 3rd Asian Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics (Asiafuge), jointly organised by the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Geotechnical Society of Singapore (GeoSS). Following the success of the 1st and 2nd series of the conference in India and Japan, we hope to continue this tradition of sharing state-of-art physical modelling technologies, methodologies as well as impactful outcomes from large scale geotechnical engineering experiments.
The theme of this conference is Tackling Modern Geotechnical Complexity with Physical Modelling, which embraces the spirit of enhancing and solving geotechnical challenges in infrastructure design, construction and resilience. The highlights include sharing and celebrating advances in: 1) equipment development, 2) advanced sensors and testing, 3) novel applications, physical vs numerical comparisons, 4) collaborative research projects, as well as 5) education and outreach in physical modelling in geotechnical engineering. Young researchers session and awards has been planned to encourage our next generation of bright researchers to take over the baton of gurus in several aspects of geotechnical engineering.
Despite the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, participants would continue to be able to enjoy and participate in the conference via online while still keeping the personal touch through virtual networking sessions and technical laboratory tours by leading institutions.
