The objective of the Benchmark-Workshop corresponds to some Ad-Hoc Committee’s Terms of Reference as follows:
- Necessity of creating a stronger link between the observed and the modelled structural behaviour.
- Opportunity to promote numerical modelling improvements to approach safety-related dam problems that do not seem at present approachable in a reliable manner.
- Validation of computational approaches for dams and simulation of the technical scientific community towards the solution of the problems mentioned in the previous item.
