PLAXIS 2D is becoming the foremost tool for the analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering.

By attending this one-day course, delegates will be tutored in how to build and assess many of the most common geotechnical structures within PLAXIS 2D.

Fundamental techniques in building, running and analysing finite element models will be covered. The influence of material model choice, pore pressures and seepage will be discussed. Hands on workshops will be utilised in order to develop practical experience of the use of PLAXIS 2D.

Lead Tutor

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.

Who Should Attend?

This course has been designed for delegates involved with geotechnical design wanting an introduction to PLAXIS 2D

The course is also useful to people wanting to gain awareness of the possibilities and opportunities that geotechnical finite element analysis present.

Course Fee


Delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.

Feedback from Previous Attendees

The course was well organised – good powerpoints. James is very knowledgeable. Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering (Manchester)

This was a very useful course on how to use PLAXIS on engineering applications. Limitations of PLAXIS modelling were also highlighted. JBA Consulting (Tadcaster) – Jeremy Benn Associates

The introductory course has proved to be a useful refresher and update for PLAXIS 2D. Cassidy Geotechnical Limited

Very helpful and well-delivered 1 day programme that comprehensively cuts across all aspects of soil structure interaction modelling. Geobond Piling & Foundation Solutions
