OnDemand Training | Bearing Capacity Analysis of Shallow Foundation with PLAXIS

This online recorded course discusses the bearing capacity analysis of shallow foundations. It addresses the bearing capacity analysis of circular footing, square footing, and strip footing in both PLAXIS 2D and PLAXIS 3D.

In this course, you will learn more about:

  • Modelling and validating various foundations using the plane strain and axisymmetry model with PLAXIS 3D.
  • Incorporating and defining different soil layers, various kinds of loads, prescribed displacements, and groundwater levels inside the models.
  • The PLAXIS 2D to 3D converter.
  • Post-processing with a demonstration of the failure mechanism and load-displacement curves.

Duration: 2 hours

“I like to work with geotechnical software, especially the PLAXIS. It feels great when a user finds his required solution after an interaction with me. Sometimes even a short email response can offer a solution to a specific problem. I help new users starting from license installation, onboarding via introductory training through to consulting for any project. It's a real joy when the prospective buyer becomes the user.”
Jeena Mary John - Product Success Manager
“As a civil engineer with research expertise who has extensively worked on PLAXIS, I have always recognized the software’s wide application in all geotechnical domains. It has been a privilege to use my knowledge to help PLAXIS users working in geotechnical modeling and analysis. I have been actively engaged with users, beginning with introducing them to PLAXIS applications during presales and eventually assisting them with their specific problems in projects. I cherish every user engagement, as resolving their issue makes my day and allows me to expand my expertise.”
