What is Monte Carlo Integration? Monte Carlo, is in fact, the name of the world-famous casino located in the eponymous district of the principality of Monaco on the world-famous French Riviera. It turns out that the casino inspired the minds of famous scientists to devise an intriguing mathematical technique for solving complex problems in statistics, numerical computing, and system simulation. One of the first and most famous uses of this technique was during the Manhattan Project when the chain-reaction dynamics in highly enriched uranium presented an unimaginably complex theoretical calculation to the scientists. Even the genius minds such as John Von Neumann, Stanislaw Ulam, and Nicholas Metropolis could not tackle it in the traditional way.
As part of the Monaco offshore extension project, Bouygues Travaux Publics is in charge of design & build a maritime infrastructure as the first step of the six-hectare expansion of the city into the sea. This maritime infrastructure consists of a fill enclosed by a band of 18 trapezoid reinforced concrete caissons and will serve as base for construction of the new eco-neighborhood in Monaco. The caisson precasting area is located in the port of Marseilles, using a dedicated floating dock.
