The NUMGE98 Conference brought together senior and young researchers, scientists and practicing engineers from European and overseas countries, to share their knowledge and experience on the various aspects of the analysis of Geotechnical Problems through Numerical Methods. The papers address a broad spectrum of geotechnical problems, including tunnels and underground openings, shallow and deep foundations, slope stability, seepage and consolidation, partially saturated soils, geothermal effects, constitutive modelling, etc.
