Simulation and modeling

The development of numerical modeling softwares and virtual/augmented reality technology have led to an improved computation and visualization of processes, such as ground motions, which are inherently difficult to observe since they occur and interact with infrastructures in the near-surface. The development of BIM (Building Information Modeling) in civil engineering has been booming in the past years and led to improved monitoring of construction phases, safety inspection and allowing to update in real-time the impact on the overall project of unforeseen events.
