This event has concluded Explore PLAXIS CONNECT Edition Solutions for Deep Excavation Problems
The system automatically detects your local time-zone based on your computer’s settings and will display the relevant date and time for you.
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.
Note: If you experience difficulties when registering for a virtual event, please contact Bentley for assistance.
Participants of this one-hour event can earn one Professional Development Hour (PDH) from Bentley Institute.
