A practical look at the challenges associated with shallow foundations 

Shallow foundations may not face the compounded problems encountered deep beneath towering high-rise structures, but they are not without their own anomalies and idiosyncrasies. 

In this webinar, we work through a number of practical examples and exercises that explore the key issues of shallow foundation analysis, alongside the tools, shortcuts and techniques PLAXIS uses to carry it out.

Watch to learn about:

  • simple variations, such as fixed to flexible footings,
  • working with different contours to address specific challenges,
  • different soil structures, and
  • more advanced visualisations to inspect the results
