This course focuses on the practical aspects of the finite element method (FEM). Over 200 similar courses have been given throughout the USA and at many other locations around the world. The course is meant for professionals from consulting and contracting companies, public work bodies and universities, who are interested in applying advanced tools to practical geotechnical engineering.

Experts will give presentations on finite element modeling aspects as well as engineering applications, such as staged construction and stability, excavations, tunnels, foundations and embankments. The course consists of a balanced mixture of presentations and hands-on computer analyses using the user-friendly PLAXIS programs.

Introduction day

Our standard course will be preceded by an optional Introduction Day. The Introduction day is especially meant for course participants that have little or no experience using PLAXIS, or only have experience with older versions of PLAXIS 2D.
