Modeling the interaction between soils and shallow foundations :Use of an iterative procedure

Dear all,

I’m very delighted to share with you our accepted conference manuscript about the use of an iterative procedure (that we’ve developed in SIMPRO Consulting and we are implementing it in our new Software, GeoSpring) to characterize the interaction between soils and shallow foundations.

Although it’s in french and not in english, I wish a good lecture for all of you,

B.G.

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.

Sincerely,

Modelling Pile Foundations In Plaxis : A Good Tutorial

Dear all,

Here, you can find attached a Plaxis tutorial detailing the different steps that one should follow for an efficient modeling of a given pile foundation system. Equivalent 3D modeling using the 2D Plaxis code is also presented.

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

Sincerely,
