17th to 19th of January 2016

The Civil Engineering program in the German University in Cairo is organizing and hosting short training course on Geotechnical modeling using PLAXIS 2015 software. This 3-day training course will focus on geotechnical modeling using PLAXIS 2D and 3D. PLAXIS is a user friendly computer program that is used worldwide by engineers to investigate practical problems for geotechnical deformations, stability assessment, consolidation analysis, and soil-structure interaction. New features in modeling, calculations, and script environment of recent version PLAXIS 2015 will be introduced. The training main topics will include constitutive laws of stress-strain relations, elastoplastic analysis, consolidation and time-dependent behavior, retaining structures of excavation, slope stability, and analysis of raft foundation, piles and tunnels. Several cases studies studied by PLAXIS will be illustrated.

This training course is targeting professional engineers, graduate students, researchers and senior students from Civil Engineering industry and Universities. At the end of the training course, each participant will receive an official Certificate of Training authorized by PLAXIS. The training course will be organized at the German University in Cairo.
