Deep excavation problems with a high groundwater table require a well-defined dewatering scheme that takes groundwater into account. When choosing to dewater the excavation pit, this scheme provides the means to accommodate changes in pore pressure and resolve resulting stress variations and deformations.

This Geotechnical Analysis Special Interest Group virtual workshop outlines PLAXIS CONNECT Edition capabilities for excavation dewatering and common pitfalls. You will learn how to:

  • Perform checks for a correct pore pressure setup
  • Define water pressures during an excavation process
  • Avoid common mistakes in dewatering schemes

This complimentary, one-hour session includes a technical presentation as well as time to share questions.
