This course is designed to boost your skills in computational geotechnics using finite element methodology. All aspects of numerical modelling will be covered ranging from conceptualization to interpretation and practical implementation of engineering design. This tailor-made course will enhance your modelling and analysis skills thus resulting in higher productivity at no cost.
These sessions will cover details of what needs to be considered for numerical modelling of slopes, tunnels, foundations, excavations and soil dynamics. On completion, you will be able to tackle the geotechnical numerical modelling issues confidently, thus avoiding redundancies and common problems
This series of webinars is not a typical webinar format but a hands-on training type training series. During the courses, the assignment for each topic will be provided to the attendees, and participants will be issued a two-week GTS NX full license to perform their assignment.
This series will NOT be released online in the form of On-Demand, but will only be available through Live Webinar.
Online certificates and surprise gifts are waiting for active participants.
We look forward to your participation.
As a participant in these 5-session courses, you'll get
Official certificate of completion will be provided to participants who have completed the course and submitted their homework four out of five courses.
GTS NX Training license will be provided to the training attendees for free in order to provide the hands-on experience of numerical analysis and help conduct the training assignments.
As for the assignment for each topic, MIDAS engineers will give the dedicated support and review to help your hands-on experience.
Participants who show a lot of questions and great effort throughout the course will receive a small gift of gratitude.

In many regions, the assessment of seismic risk and the implications on design become increasingly significant.
You will get an overview of the dynamic analysis,
which focused on seismic applications.

In this session, Ultimate Limit State (ULS) calculation will be defined and performed for the excavation analysis. We will also present the design approach of Eurocode 7. It will allow using partial factors for loads and materials after a serviceability calculation has been performed.

The stress state induced by the construction of a tunnel is three-dimensional (3D) in general. Furthermore, 2D analysis & design of tunnels is hard to appropriately access the behavior of cross &main tunnel intersection, which is more vulnerable. This session covers the necessary 3D modeling & analysis approach in this regard.

The construction on soft soil leads to an increase on pore pressure. As a result, the effective stress remains low and intermediate consolidation periods have to be considered. In this session we will lock into the behaviours of ground improvement subjected to long-term consolidation.
