OnDemand Training | PLAXIS Shaft and Dewatering

This training demonstrates the practical use of PLAXIS 2D for the analysis of a circular shaft. The training focuses on the relevant modeling features for this type of project:

  • Model boundary
  • Structural force evaluation
  • Soil pressure assessment
  • Influence of a soil constitutive model (stress and strain stiffness-dependency)

Particular attention is paid to:

  • Dewatering modeling strategy
  • Assessment, understanding, and remedies for common convergence issues, often associated with this type of problem

The training consists of a 30-minute presentation focusing on the main PLAXIS features used,  as well as a full model description. This presentation is followed by an in-depth 1-hour demonstration for building up PLAXIS 2D model from scratch, including in-depth model results post-processing and interpretation.

Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes
