Workshop on Geotechnical Modelling of Underground Construction & Geosynthetic Structures

Date 26/10/2017 - 27/10/2017
Location Chennai
Organizer Plaxis Asiapac, Ram Caddsys & IIT Madras

This two-day workshop provides better understanding of PLAXIS 2D & 3D for Geotechnical Modelling of Underground and Geosynthetic Structures to cater the industry needs. The main goal of this workshop is to teach the concepts and practical use of the most relevant Plaxis features for Underground & Geosynthetic Structures.

During these two days participants will become familiar with the different options in PLAXIS for modelling Underground & Geosynthetic Structures. The participants will get acquainted with the use of PLAXIS 2D & 3D by doing hands-on exercises. During these exercises, individual assistance will be provided by experienced Plaxis tutors.
