Rock engineering projects can be challenging. Engineers working on rock need to design solutions that mobilize the natural strength of complex, largely unknown rock masses, which often play the roles of both loading and engineering material.
Numerical modelers and geotechnical engineers should check out this webinar series to learn more about rock engineering applications, their challenges, and the resources you can use to solve these problems by using PLAXIS geotechnical analysis software. See how PLAXIS rock analysis software offers fast, comprehensive analysis methods you can trust for your most demanding rock projects.

Explore the 2D excavation analysis of a tunnel in a rock mass. This webinar will particularly focus on PLAXIS 2D model construction, more specifically highlighting tunnel geometry, rock bolt definition, and the use of the convergence-confinement method for the consideration of 3D effects. Finally, extensive elements of comparison with an identical analysis run in FLAC2D geotechnical analysis software will be discussed.
In this webinar, you will learn about:

Explore the analysis of a diaphragm wall for a 2D deep excavation in weathered chalk with two different constitutive models:
A sensitivity analysis will follow to investigate the influence of the orientation of the weak bedding planes.

This webinar focuses on the time evolution of the convergence following the excavation of a circular tunnel in claystone. Because of the considerably large initial stress values (due to the large depth of the excavation) and to limit the development of excessive normal forces, a yielding sprayed concrete lining of high bearing capacity is being placed. Special attention will be dedicated to the modeling of specific yield elements though a UDSM model.
