Advanced course in Computational Geotechnics

TypeAdvanced course
Date 29/10/2018 - 31/10/2018
Location Trondheim
Organizer Plaxis bv in cooperation with NTNU


The courses in Computational Geotechnics in Norway are organised every second year at NTNU by Plaxis bv and NTNU. This year the course is on an advanced level and aims primarily at users with some experience in Computational Geotechnics. One of the aims of this course is to teach how to apply advanced soil models, starting with the Hardening Soil model and the small-strain stiffness extension, continuing with Soft Soil and Soft Soil Creep. Finally the NGI-ADP and a user defined effective stress based ADP model will be presented.  Another aim of the course is to teach numerical analysis of various geotechnical problems, such as excavations and embankments. Finally, the third day will focus on 3D modelling of shallow foundations, piles and slope stability. The course consists of a mixture of theoretical and technical presentations and practical problems to be solved using PLAXIS 2D and PLAXIS 3D.


The course fee is NOK 12,000 (EUR 1275,-). The fee includes all lunches and a course dinner downtown at 20:00 on Tuesday night. The course fee also includes a full set
of instruction manuals and the use of a computer. An invoice with payment instruction will be sent to you after registration.
