A complex three-dimensional finite element model has been developed to study the effects of tunnel construction on adjacent structures. The model uses an in-house finite element code in which complex simulations and non-linear material models have been developed. This paper describes the transfer of this code to a large parallel computer, and the improvements in performance that resulted from the move. The examination of the code, which was necessary for the transfer, also led to improvements in the serial version.
