Python for Geotechnical Engineering


Hello!

I have intermediate knowledge of Python and have mostly used Python for Data Science. I would like to know how can I utilize Python in geotechnical engineering. If anyone can suggest to me relevant Python packages as well as tutorials for geotechnical engineering specific to numerical modeling, I will be very thankful.

Regards

Hi Dr. Aali Pant,

PLAXIS 2D/3D has a nice Python interoperability/API entry.
See here for more details and cookbook examples: https://communities.bentley.com/products/geotech-analysis/w/plaxis-soilvision-wiki/45393/api-python-scripting---plaxis

The latest example we added is actually very interesting: Automatically generated cross-sections of embankments

We also did a high-level demo in this on-demand webinar (you would need a Bentley Account for this):

Kind regards,
