Soil Modelling and Numercial Methods 2018
The course introduces a range of constitutive models capable of describing soil behaviour, and provides an understanding of the principles of numerical modelling. On completion of the course, delegates will have developed the ability to: • describe the basic features of commonly used models of soil behaviour • understand the advantages and limitations of different models of soil behaviour, and to select the appropriate soil parameters • use a finite element program to analyse a wide range of geotechnical problems such as foundation or embankment loading situations Presentations, directed reading and tutorial exercises are combined with the use of geotechnical finite element software to provide the delegate with a thorough knowledge and understanding of soil modelling.
