OnDemand Training | PLAXIS: Analysis of a Buried Pipe

Buried pipes and culverts are the oldest civil engineering utilities defining the efficiency and comfort of a city/town. With the use of Finite Element Analysis, interaction among, structural elements (pipes, liners), ground water and soil has become a reality. This has been raised to a geotechnical industry standard by PLAXIS 2D/3D. Design and analysis of any buried pipe, whether it is old or new can easily be modeled by PLAXIS 2D and analyzed with all possible traffic load, pipe water pressure and any effect of ambient temperature. PLAXIS 2D can perform hydro-mechanical fully coupled analysis if necessary.

In this training, we will be looking into the circular, non-circular geometry creation in PLAXIS 2D, checking of the stability of excavation (FOS determination), water movement during the excavation, along with the usual stages of construction of buried pipes. We will learn to design the pipe interaction with the soil and groundwater in a realistic way. We will also see the various comprehensive output options and tools that we have in PLAXIS 2D.

“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.”
