PLAXIS 3D is an important tool allowing the user to determine the deformation and stability of geotechnical structures in situations in which the assumption of a 2D slice is not realistic.

Whilst attending this one-day course delegates will be guided through the procedure of developing and meshing high quality geometry for PLAXIS 3D in applications such as retaining walls, embankments, tunnels, deep and shallow foundations. 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 3D.

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 to develop skills in 3D geotechnical finite element modelling.

The course is also useful to people wanting to gain awareness of the possibilities and opportunities that 3D geotechnical finite element analysis present.


1 Day

The course commences at 9:00am and finishes at approximately 5:00pm.
