PLAXIS SIG Workshop: Modeling Monopile Foundations in 3D and 1D

Date 13/08/2019
Location Online
Lectures Miquel Lahoz

Making the most of your PLAXIS functionality is key to your project success. To help, this virtual workshop focuses on how to model monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines using both 3D finite elements and simplified 1D design methods. Topics include:

  • Common-practice modeling assumptions for the geotechnical analysis of offshore monopile foundations
  • Native and remote scripting to automate model definition
  • Applications and limitations of full 3D modeling and the two most common 1D methods (P-Y and PISA)

This complimentary, one-hour session includes a technical presentation as well as time to share questions.
Note: If you experience difficulties when registering for a virtual event, please contact Bentley for assistance.


Participants of this one-hour event can earn one Professional Development Hour (PDH) from Bentley Institute. To review your Bentley Transcript/Learning History, go to There, you can self-report your professional development efforts to the respective organization, licensing board, or professional association. Requirements may vary and acceptance of Bentley Institute PDHs is ultimately at the discretion of the those organizations. Bentley recommends that you confirm board or association terms and conditions.
