Thank you for your interest in our Online Training on ‘Shaft and dewatering’. This training is fully booked, should you wish to receive the recorded version along with all OT material: PDF, presentation, build-up PLAXIS models and logfiles for a discounted price of EU225,- please contact Expert Services via the contact form

Topics covered

This online training will demonstrate the practical use of Plaxis 2D for the analysis of a circular shaft. The training will particularly be focusing on the relevant modelling features for such type of project:

  • model boundary,
  • structural force evaluation,
  • soil pressure assessment
  • influence of soil constitutive model (stress and strain stiffness-dependency)

More particularly, special attention will be provided on

  • dewatering modelling strategy
  • assessment, understanding and remedies to most experienced convergence issues often associated with this type of problems

Date & Time

Wednesday, January  18, starting at 16:00 Central European Time.

The training will first consist of a 30 minutes presentation focusing on the main PLAXIS features about to be used as well as a full model description. The presentation will then be followed by a 1h00 in depth live demonstration for building up PLAXIS 2D model from scratch including in-depth model results post-processing and interpretation. Finally a 15 minute question-answer session will be held.

The course material (powerpoint presentation, all elaborated PLAXIS model files, recording video) will be distributed to all attendees after the online training on request to:
