Topics covered

This online training will demonstrate the practical use of Plaxis 3D for modelling piles. The training will particularly be focusing on some of the most relevant modelling issues for such type of analyses:

  • Volume pile approach and formulation of embedded piles
  • Optimum geometry definition and mesh generation for multiple volume piles problem (pile group)
  • Volume piles vs embedded piles
  • Embedded piles under axial loading: Validation and limitations
  • Best practices for embedded piles in piled raft foundation: Near field vs far field solution


After the training participants receive the training materials

  • presentation slides (in pdf)
  • PLAXIS model file(s)s (latest PLAXIS version only)
  • link to the recorded video (available 3 months)
  • summary of the Questions & Answers
