The main goal of this workshop
is to teach the use and basic concepts of modelling road embankments on soft soil in PLAXIS 2D
and to train the participants in using the software themselves. During the day aspects on modelling of embankments are discussed as well as different models for soft soil, consolidation analysis and the use of drains. For solving practical problems the latest PLAXIS 2D computer program will be used. It is recommended, though not required, that participants already have experience with the PLAXIS 2D software.
