PLAXIS Introduction Training Course (UK)
School of Engineering
University of Warwick
Accommodation can be booked via Warwick Conferences https://warwick.ac.uk/services/conferences/bedrooms/.
- 7th April 2020 - 8th April 2020
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This two-day training course is designed to help engineers and researchers model geotechnical design problems accurately and efficiently using finite element analysis (FEA) techniques within the leading PLAXIS software. Topics will include:
- An introduction to geotechnical finite element analysis.
- Benefits of using numerical methods to solve practical geotechnical problems.
- An introduction to using PLAXIS 2D.
- How to predict ground movements, structural deflections and loads.
- How to account for the correct combined interaction between the structure and the ground.
- Hands-on workshops on foundations, retaining walls and other applications.
The course will also be a great opportunity to network with fellow PLAXIS users and geotechnical engineers
Training will comprise a balanced agenda of presentations and workshops. A PC will be provided (one per delegate) plus lunch and refreshments.
This course is presented by Dr Andrew Mar B.Eng. (Hons.) Ph.D. C.Eng. MICE FGS, Technical Director at CECL Global with over 20 years experience in PLAXIS and numerical modelling of soils.
Who Should Attend?
Engineers, managers and researchers within geotechnical engineering seeking to understand the principles of finite element analysis, soil modelling and how to use PLAXIS effectively.
2 Days (7-8th April 2020)
The course commences at 9:00am and finishes at approximately 5:00pm.
£975, including lunch and refreshments.
