The main goal of this workshop is to teach the use and basic concepts of modelling dynamics in PLAXIS and to train the participants in using the software themselves. 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.
During this day participants will become familiar with the different options that PLAXIS offers for modelling the dynamic boundary conditions as well as the possibilities offered to model single source vibrations and seismic analysis with the PLAXIS software. Furthermore,it is also possible to model soil response analysis. The participants will get acquainted with the use of PLAXIS 2D by doing hands on exercises. During these exercises individual assistance will be provided by experienced Plaxis tutors.
The course starts with registration at 8:45. The program format consists of three lectures (approx. 45 mins. each) and three exercises (approx. 75 mins. each) with full tutoring and discussion. The course will be completely in English. The organisers reserve the right to make any necessary amendments to the format or schedule.

The lecturers have a long time experience with the use of PLAXIS software. Besides giving courses they are also daily involved with the users through the Support Department.
The cost of the workshop is € 695. The cost includes lunch and refreshments. The course fee also includes a full set of instruction manuals and the use of a computer.
