Standard Course on Computational Geotechnics


This course focuses on the practical aspects of the finite element method (FEM). Over a dozen similar courses have been given throughout the USA and all together more than 200 at several other locations around the world. An optional day is organised that is dedicated to modelling dynamic behaviour and earthquake engineering. The course is meant for professionals from consulting/contracting companies, public work bodies and universities, who are interested in applying advanced tools to practical geotechnical engineering. Experts will give presentations on finite element modelling aspects as well as (geo-)engineering applications, such as staged construction and stability excavations, foundations and embankments.

New Plaxis users

This Standard Course is meant for participants with some experience using PLAXIS in their daily engineering practice and thus do have knowledge on how the user interface works. Hence, for participants that have not worked with the PLAXIS software before it is strongly recommended to apply for our free Introduction version (send your request to ) in order to get
acquainted to the software prior to the course as PLAXIS is not extensively introduced as part of this course.
