For the first time since 2010 Plaxis organizes again a Standard Course on Computational Geotechnics in South Africa. As for previous courses this course is held in close cooperation with the Geotechnical Division of the South African Institute of Civil Engineering (SAICE).
The course will consist of a balanced mixture of lectures and hands-on computer analyses. The lectures focus mainly on soil behaviour and advanced methods in geotechnical engineering and less on the use of the PLAXIS software. Subjects as undrained behaviour and consolidation, previously treated only in advanced courses, have been included in this course. This way the course off ers an introduction to the modelling of geotechnical problems that are encountered in day-to-day engineering practice. The computer exercises are performed with the PLAXIS 2D code. The course is aimed at consulting and contracting companies, public work bodies and universities.
