This live online training includes several key components on modelling dynamics in PLAXIS. The first part is formed by a presentation, the second part consists of a demonstration in PLAXIS 2D, and the training is concluded by conclusions and Q&A. The demonstration will include model setup, analyzing results and generating curves. We willl use PLAXIS 2D 2017, with 2D Dynamics 2017.
Topics covered include the HSsmall model (aka Hardening Soil with small strain capabilities), parameters required (stiffness/strength), Rayleigh and Hysteric damping (coefficients and modulus reduction curve), dynamics boundary conditions, and interface elements. Note: liquefaction will not be covered in this training.
The workshop material will be distributed to all attendees after the online training. Should you be willing to perform the exercise at some point, you will need to have a PLAXIS 2D 2017 license with the 2D Dynamics module. If you do not have a license the project files can be distributed with the free PLAXIS 2D Viewer in order to inspect the supplied model's results.
The training can accomodate 25 participants. We recommend paying by credit card to guarantee your seat in the online training. The invitation to join the online session will be sent when receipt of payment has been confirmed. Note that registrations are done on a per user basis, if you order multiple seats, please include the relevant contact information like name, family name and email address of the other participants.
