Standard Course on Computational Geotechnics

Standard Course on Computational Geotechnics

Applying the finite element method (FEM) for efficient and accurate stress and deformation analysis and stability assessment.

Run annually by Wilde Analysis and Plaxis for over 15 years, this popular training event has helped hundreds of geotechnical engineers and researchers from the civil engineering, oil & gas, nuclear and renewable energy industries.

The course provides an introduction to the modelling of geotechnical problems that are encountered in day-to-day engineering practice, through a balanced mixture of lectures and “hands-on” computer-based workshops.

Standard Course (19- 21 June) Topics include:

  • Plasticity and Mohr Coulomb models
  • Hardening Soil model
  • Excavations
  • Drained and undrained behaviour
  • Non-linear analysis
  • Consolidation and phi/c reduction
  • Reinforced and unreinforced embankments
  • Groundwater flow modelling

Introduction to Plaxis (18 June)

This optional preliminary day is for delegates who have little experience in using PLAXIS and would like to become familiar with the software before the 3 day Standard Course starts.
