Published: 27/04/2015


Last April 22nd Fernando Salazar and Javier San Mauro from CIMNE Madrid gave the CIMNE COFFEE TALK entitled "Algunos retos diabólicos para expertos en modelación numérica" at the headquarters of CIMNE in Barcelona.
They talked about the project DIABLO, which was related with the numerical simulation of spillways protected with wedge shaped blocks (WSB) of precast concrete and placed over earthfill and rockfill dams. They explained the main features of the WSB spillways and the numerical challenges posed to obtain accuracy approaches, in order to discuss with the audience in a round table format several numerical strategies to deal these numerical challenges.
