Participants are given an overview of modeling geotechnical problems. Experimental testing and how it relates to the calibration of constitutive models for geotechnical materials is reviewed. The seminar teaches users how to use and calibrate the different geotechnical material constitutive models available in Abaqus and discusses the limitations of these models. The coupling between fluid flow and stress/deformation in the analysis of porous media is also considered. Modeling issues related to geotechnical problems are addressed and numerous illustrative examples are examined.

Who Should Attend

This seminar is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus/Standard.
