The problem of changing water conditions is omnipresent in geotechnical engineering. Groundwater is systematically found beneath the Earth's surface in soil pore spaces and rock formation fractures. The flow of groundwater is a fundamental aspect that controls the strength and compressibility of soil, impacting soil's ability to sustain structural loads. The study of groundwater is essential for geotechnical engineers who construct building foundations, tunnels, water conveyance channels, dams, mines, and other structures.

In this context, PLAXIS 2D and PLAXIS 3D are fully equipped with a complete set of tools to model changes of pore water pressure and, more specifically, dewatering, along with its influence on soil mechanical behavior.

​In this webinar, we will showcase: 

  • Static Analysis of a Dam
  • Stability Analysis
  • Flow Conditions
