The members of the ISSMGE TC104 committee welcome you to our website.
TC104 serves academics as a forum to develop opportunities in research and teaching related to geotechnical physical modelling, and to promote best practice.
This website presents our term of references and the activities to be developed for the current term, provides contact details for the global network of TC104 members, and a list of experimental facilities worldwide. Whether you are already active in geotechnical modelling, or are considering beginning research or facility development in this area, TC104 can link you with colleagues worldwide who have experience and knowledge that could assist your project. The website also features a unique forum where TC104 members but also academic and practitioners from others areas within the geotechnical, environmental and civil engineering may interact, share their knowledge and discuss geotechnical problems.
If you are involved in research or teaching that includes geotechnical physical modelling, you may wish to disseminate your knowledge to the wider academic community. TC104 facilitates academic interaction through various platforms: the International Journal of Physical Modelling in Geotechnics (IJPMG), the quadrennial International Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics (ICPMG), and more regular local workshops.
