Fundamentals of FEM for Geotechnical Engineering

Geosoft Pte Ltd introduces finite element method (FEM) for the analysis of geotechnical problems. We aim to bridge the gap between practice and theory of finite element method. Steady-state condition is considered. Element properties, convergence requirements and modelling errors are discussed. FEM and solution procedures for linear and nonlinear analyses are presented. The basic linear theory behind the FEM combined with numerical calculations leads to the key variables such as displacements, strains and stresses in various structures and the soil medium. By emphasizing on modelling technique, and by illustration with case studies, the objective is to provide the concepts and techniques of applying FEM to solve practical problems. Limitations and pitfalls of FEM will be elaborated. The course is designed for engineering managers and engineers who would be using the FEM for design analysis, design validation, strength and integrity assessment.

The course details are as follows:
