Getting the best from geogrids with PLAXIS 2D 

Geogrids can be enormously useful as a mechanical way of stabilizing retaining walls or built-up slopes, especially where the soil is soft and has less adhesion. They’re used frequently on ramps for underpasses or flyovers, for example, and come in a variety of weaves, shapes, and materials. The geogrid market is a big one. 

In this webinar we take a closer look at how the many forms of geogrids work and what makes them successful, as well as investigate the manner in which they are used within PLAXIS 2D to ensure slopes and retaining systems operate at their peak stability.

Watch this webinar to see:

  • where and how geogrids might fail, and how to predict it
  • models of unreinforced and reinforced soil retaining structures
  • the effect of groundwater
  • a comparison between an excavation using a retaining wall and one using a geogrid
