MIDAS Geotech - Free FEM Online Courses in September 2020 Mastering Tunnel Design & Analysis 8 September, 22 September @7AM(GMT), 8AM(London), 9AM(CET), 2PM(Jakarta), 3PM(SG, KL), 5PM(Sydney), 7PM(Wellington) | Duration : 60 Min

This online course focuses on numerical analysis of shallow tunnels, which frequently cause soil–structure interaction problems in urban areas. Their construction affects existing underground and above-ground structures and there is a need to keep the settlement induced by tunnelling as small as possible. Such complex soil–structure interaction problems can only be solved by numerical analysis, which provides complete information on the stress–strain conditions of the tunnel, the surrounding soil mass and nearby structures.


This online course will present the basic and advanced training examples through the webinar sessions and the homework missions which are designed to enhance the understanding of training. Any geotechnical or civil engineers are able to attend this course for free.


The course participants will be able to use the free training license after each session and the official certificate of completion will be also provided to the active attendees.
