Event Details

The 2 kilometre Wapping Tunnel was the first railway tunnel to run under city streets and a major achievement when it opened in 1830. It connected the Liverpool docks to the first modern railway, the Liverpool & Manchester, and took raw materials, notably cotton, to the factories in and around Manchester. This talk examines the potential and problems in using OpenSim to model the construction and operation of this landmark tunnel.
