Middleware-based modelling and simulation of geotechnical structures

Abstract: Modern large scaled buildings are erected on rather complex foundations. The design and analysis of these geotechnical systems requires a high quality of computer modelling and simulation. Therefore, it is necessary to model all geotechnical structural elements in a realistic and practice-oriented way. Due to the complexity of geotechnical structures object-oriented models are most appropriate. To solve large problems by means of the finite element method using a multi-component-continua theory for partially saturated porous media, it is necessary to parallelize the discretization and the simulation of the soil models. Furthermore, new communication methods permit the distribution of discretization and simulation processes by accessing computer clusters through the Internet.
