This workshop is an introduction to modeling geotechnical problems using commercially available geotechnical software. Different geotechnical programs and numerical methods will be discussed and compared with each other. Principals of numerical modeling will be described. The modeling procedure for several practical geotechnical examples will be demonstrated using FLAC, GeoStudio software package, and PLAXIS. The workshop is very useful for students and professionals in the field of civil, geotechnical, and mining engineering.
The instructor will be Siavash Zamiran, a PhD Candidate in SIUC and instructor in SIUE who is president of Geo-Institute SIUE and also staff engineer in Marino Engineering Associates, Inc. based on St. Louis, MO.
