This standard course in the UK has a long tradition in advanced geotechnical engineering. Each year it is well attended by participants from consulting and contracting companies, public work bodies and universities. As usual, the forthcoming course consists of a balanced mixture of lectures and hands-on computer analyses.
As in previous years the lectures focus mainly on soil behaviour and advanced methods in geotechnical engineering and less on the use of the PLAXIS programs. Subjects are illustrated by practical case studies of for instance embankments and deep excavations. This way, the course offers an introduction to the modelling of geotechnical problems that are encountered in day-to-day engineering practice.
New this year is the introductory day, scheduled on the Monday before the course. This day is intended for those who have little experience in using PLAXIS and want to know the software better before the actual course starts. The computer exercises are performed with the PLAXIS 2D code. As a consequence of the easy program operation, teaching and tutoring will focus on geotechnical aspects, which allows for the short course format of three days.
