This two-day training course aims to provide attendees with a comprehensive introduction on the finite element method (FE) as applied to geotechnics for prediction of deformation and stability of soil structures.
Through a combination of lectures, Q&A and discussion interspersed with live demonstrations using PLAXIS, it covers the background required to appreciate the responsible application of numerical modelling in engineering practice. Course topics include:
The course will also be a great opportunity to network with fellow PLAXIS users and geotechnical engineers
This course is presented by Dr Andrew Mar B.Eng. (Hons.) Ph.D. C.Eng. MICE FGS.
Andrew is Technical Director at CECL Global with over 30 years experience in the numerical modelling of soils and effective use of PLAXIS.
Engineers, managers and researchers within geotechnical engineering seeking to understand the principles of finite element analysis, soil modelling and how to use PLAXIS effectively.
The course commences at 9:00am and finishes at approximately 5:00pm.
Over the two days, approximately 12 hours will be taken by formal lectures, Q&A, discussion and for delegates to walk through workshop examples.
