PLAXIS Workshops focus directly on learning and using the features of the Plaxis software related to the subject of the workshop. The main goal of this workshop is to teach the use and basic concepts of modelling Groundwater in PLAXIS 2D and to train the participants in using the software themselves.

During the day the different options to model Groundwater in PLAXIS are discussed. PLAXIS offers the ability to use either pore pressure generation or groundwater flow calculation (both steady state and transient). The differences and consequences are explained and the results of the different methods are compared.

For solving practical problems the PLAXIS 2D 2018 computer program will be used. It is recommended, though not required, that participants already have experience with the PLAXIS 2D software.
