In this event, PLAXIS users are invited to give a presentation on the application of PLAXIS finite element software in actual geotechnical engineering projects. Attendees will get to learn from the experiences shared by the speakers and also participate in the Q&A session scheduled.
The agenda of the event is as follows:
PLAXIS CE: Current Advancement & Future Development
Er. William Chong will present on the simplified method in modelling a deep soil mixing wall in PLAXIS 3D, where a lattice arrangement is proposed.
Er. Alex Leung will present on the assessment of TBM support pressures for a railway project which involves shallow tunneling in soft, fine-grained soil with undrained shear strength of approximately 10 to 30 kPa. Under these conditions of low overburden and low shear strength, three-dimensional finite element analyses using PLAXIS 3D are performed to consider the combined effects of TBM face pressure and tail void grouting pressure.
Prof Harry Tan will present on the subject of ground displacements induced by an increase in volumetric strains due to the installation of displacement-driven or jack-in piles. This is very important because there is a great need to correctly assess the magnitude of cumulative ground displacements and the impact on buried or surface structures and their foundations. Prof Tan will discuss relevant research and how these strains and induced ground movements can be modelled correctly and realistically in FEM analysis.
