Equivalent 3D Modeling of Piles using Plaxis 2D

Dear all,

As the majority of us has not a license for finite element 3D modeling, I’ve attached in this post 2 PDF files detailing how to build up an equivalent 3D model of a given group of piles using Plaxis 2D.

I hope that it will be useful for all of you.
