COURSE OUTLINE
PROGRAMME
The emphasis of the course is on the understanding of basic soil mechanics behind the use of soil
constitutive modeling in geotechnical FEM like Plaxis. The importance of drained, undrained and DAY 1
consolidation behavior is examined. These principles are then applied to practical geotechnical
problems like deep excavations, pile-raft foundation and slope and embankment engineering 09.00 10.00 : Lecture 1 FEM and Concepts of Plasticity
problems. Some aspects of 3D-FEM analysis will be addressed to allow users to appreciate when : Lecture 2 Mohr-Coulomb and Plasticity
2D-FEM is inadequate, and proper 3D-FEM is needed to solve practical geotechnical problems. 10.00 10.30 : Tea Break
