"With PLAXIS 3D you easily define various elements. The results were totally satisfying and our conclusion about using PLAXIS 3D is very positive"
The Odéon tower project in Monaco is exceptional, both by its height, 160m, the tallest building in Monaco, and the depth of the excavation required, planned to reach about 70m. TERRASOL was entrusted with geotechnical consultancy on the soil testing, foundations, etc, but also and mostly with the implementation of a 3D finite elements model to analyze notably the influence of excavations on the surrounding buildings.
In this video the modeling of this tunnel is shown in PLAXIS 3D 2010. With this project consisting of 28 boreholes, 21 surfaces, 140 anchors and 43 construction phases, special attention is given to the array command, the command runner, and the easy selection, activation and hiding/showing of elements in the model. Furthermore the video shows the broad selection of results offered.
