Location Manchester
Organizer Wilde Analysis & Plaxis bv

Plaxis courses in the UK have a long tradition in advanced geotechnical engineering. The advanced course is organised every two years and is well attended by participants from consulting and contracting companies, public work bodies and universities.

As usual, the forthcoming course consists of a balanced mixture of lectures and hands-on computer analyses. The lectures focus mainly on soil behaviour and advanced methods in geotechnical engineering and less on the use of the PLAXIS programs. Subjects as undrained behaviour and consolidation in relation to the advanced constitutive models available in PLAXIS have been included in this course.

These subjects are illustrated by practical case studies of embankments and deep excavations. The computer exercises are performed with the PLAXIS 2D and PLAXIS 3D code. As a consequence of the easy program operation, teaching and tutoring will focus on geotechnical aspects, which allows for the short course format of three days.
