Practical Use of PLAXIS in Tunneling and Underground Excavations – Demonstration: 2D and 3D Analyses for the Evaluation of the Deconfinement Levels

Topics covered

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

  • Tunnel designer and relevant features for creating tunnel geometry and Sequential excavation (NATM) and shield tunneling modeling features
  • General considerations on
    • Material models (small strain stiffness, shotcrete, swelling rock)
    • Structural elements
    • Dewatering

The presentation will be followed by an extensive live demonstration for setting up 3D and 2D tunnels analyses for the assessment of the proper deconfinement levels.


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

Please use the participant email address for further correspondence.
