PLAXIS LE 3D can be used for projects involving engineering analysis of slope stability, groundwater flow, consolidation, or a combination of these complex scenarios. Take advantage of automated techniques, data management through to analysis workflows, and access to comprehensive analysis methods to find solutions.

This webinar provides a basic and practical overview of the PLAXIS LE® 3D software. Basic tutorials are presented. The focus of the presentations is related to the creation of models for application in the mining and infrastructure industry.

Presentation time will primarily be split between a presentation discussing an overview of the PLAXIS LE® 3D product, some product demos, and training on the software. The reasons for performing a three-dimensional slope stability analysis will also be discussed.

Join the webinar to learn: 

  • Introduction to 3D LEM
  • Model creation steps
  • Features overview
  • Results interpretation
  • Comparison with 2D results
  • Demo: Embankment
  • Demo: Open pit
  • Demo: Tailings dam

Murray Fredlund, Ph.D., P.Eng.

Senior Strategic Advisor, Geotechnical
Virtuosity, a Bentley Company

Dr. Fredlund received his training from the University of Saskatchewan and Texas A&M University and has published over 50 research papers on topics related to database design, finite element modeling, and unsaturated soil knowledge-based systems. In 1997 he started SoilVision Systems Ltd. with a database software product called SoilVision which could be used to estimate unsaturated soil behavior. He has since directed the development of eight other finite element software packages covering areas of groundwater flow, contaminant transport, geothermal analysis, air-flow analysis, stress / deformation, and slope stability. The software products of SoilVision Systems Ltd. are used in over 100 countries by consultants, universities, government agencies and multinational corporations.
