This webinar was originally presented on May 16, 2022 through the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).

This on-demand webinar illustrates the use of numerical design analysis tools in transportation-related projects as part of an interconnected geotechnical modelling workflow.

​In this webinar, we will showcase: 

  • 2D and 3D finite element (FE) analyses of a tunnel excavation and portal slope reinforcement process
  • Slope stability analysis at different locations along the road corridor
  • Interoperability with Leapfrog to analyze a geological model and demonstrate an integrated modeling workflow for quick, safe, and reliable numerical model construction
