Welcome to ISSMGE TC104, Physical Modelling in Geotechnics

Technical Committee 104 disseminates and develops knowledge and practice within the area of physical modelling in geotechnical engineering by establishing working groups to promote the sharing of resources for teaching that uses physical modelling, to develop standardized and sustainable equipment and sensors for physical modelling, and to produce a website for general dissemination and communication on physical modelling.

TC104 hosts the ISSMGE Honored Scofield Lecture and have it delivered at major conferences. Past recipients of the Scofield Lecture are Malcolm Bolton (2012), Bruce Kutter, Mark Randolph (2017), and Neil Taylor (2018).

TC104 hosts the International Conference of Physical Modelling on Geotechnics (ICPMG), Asiafuge and Eurofuge every 4 years. Past ICPMG includes 6th (2006, Hong Kong), 7th (2010, Zurich), 8th (2014, Perth), 9th (2018, London). The 10th ICPMG will be held on 2022 in Daejeon, Korea.
