Webinar Series: Concept to Construction
Part 6 - PLAXIS
3D Geotechnical Engineering
Accurate design of foundations often requires multiple software programs. Therefore, software interoperability has a profound impact on the project’s success in terms of time and cost. In this webinar, we will show the workflow of a foundation design by importing geometry, subsurface information, and structural load data to PLAXIS 3D.
The webinar will cover these topics:
- Import of topography from OpenSite (after modifying the reality modeling data).
Prepare the topography in PLAXIS Designer and export to PLAXIS 3D.
Use a gINT model and export the BoreHole data to PLAXIS 3D.
Model the building pit using retaining walls with anchors / struts.
Perform slope stability analysis.
Compute the groundwater lowering.
Design the foundation with isolated footing, raft or piled foundation.
Analyze the soil-structure interaction with STAAD.Pro using PLAXIS 3D coupling tool.
