UDEC/3DEC Symposium 2004

September 30, 2004
Bochum, Germany

More than 100 attendees were present at the UDEC/3DEC Symposium September 30-October 2, 2004, in Bochum, Germany. In addition to the excellent opportunity to share ideas and experience in the use of UDEC and 3DECin engineering practice and science, those in attendance also received:

  • the conference proceedings — a valuable resource in examining the state-of-the-art in numerical modeling via distinct element methods
  • an advance preview copy of UDEC 4.0, with substantial new features including a graphical user interface that provides visual access to all program functions and commands

The UDEC/3DEC Symposium was the first-ever gathering of a large assembly of users to describe and discuss the wide variety of problems to which UDEC and 3DEC may be applied. Symposium sessions covered engineering applications and theoretical developments in topic areas that included: masonry structures; tunnels and caverns; mining and waste repositories; general geomechanics; rock reinforcements; and, slopes, dams, and foundations. The topics of the symposium are contained in the symposium proceedings, Numerical Modeling of Discrete Materials, edited by edited by symposium organizer Heinz Konietzky.
