GEOTECHNICAL ANALYSIS: AN INTRODUCTION TO PLAXIS 2D

The online introduction training to PLAXIS 2D aims to give novice users a quick start in using PLAXIS 2D. The training consists of four (4) sessions of approximately three (3) hours each. Sessions one and two mainly focus on functionality of PLAXIS 2D while sessions three and four focus on one of the most important and also most difficult parts of geotechnical analysis: obtaining soil parameters.

All sessions include both presentations and live demos. Participants will also have some “homework” to do in the form of an additional hands on exercise of which the results will be discussed at the beginning of the successive session.

The four sessions of this training are:

  • Module 1 | Session 1: Introduction to PLAXIS 2D — Concepts and Structural Elements
  • Module 1 | Session 2: Introduction to PLAXIS 2D — Initial Stresses and Groundwater
  • Module 2 | Session 3: PLAXIS 2D Soil Parameters — Parameters for Sand
  • Module 2 | Session 4: PLAXIS 2D Soil Parameters — Parameters for Clay

Attendees are highly encouraged to attend all four sessions. A basic working knowledge of PLAXIS 2D software is required to maximize learning of Soil Parameters (Module 2).


This ACCELERATE Virtual Series is offered complimentary (no fee) to all attendees.
