This international course has a long tradition in advanced geotechnical engineering. Each year it is well attended by participants from consulting and contracting companies, public work bodies and universities. As usual, the forthcoming course consists of a balanced mixture of lectures and hands-on computer analyses.
As in previous years the lectures focus mainly on soil behaviour and advanced methods in geotechnical engineering and less on the use of the Plaxis programs. Subjects as undrained behaviour and consolidation, previously treated only in advanced courses, have been included in this course. They are illustrated by practical case studies of embankments and deep excavations. This way, the course offers an introduction to the modelling of geotechnical problems that are encountered in day-to-day engineering practice.
The computer exercises are performed with the latest version of the PLAXIS 2D code. As a consequence of the easy program operation, teaching and tutoring will focus on geotechnical aspects, which allows for the short course format of three days.
