Mitigating a fatal flaw in modern geomechanics: understanding uncertainty, applying model calibration, and defying the hubris in numerical modelling

Kathy Kalenchuk, Ph.D., P.Eng. (ON, BC & MB), PE (MN), President & Principal Consultant, RockEng

This colloquium has been prepared to achieve two objectives.  The first objective is to provide a discussion of the practical limitations of numerical modelling in the field of geomechanical engineering. The second objective is to provide ‘how to’ guidelines for model calibration using a variety of ground reaction data types.
