Short course: Finite Elements in Geotechnical Engineering

Professor D. Vaughan Griffiths

The short course will provide attendees with an insight into the use of finite elements in geotechnical engineering covering a range of traditional geotechnical applications:

  • An introduction to the course materials and software
  • Introduction to the finite element method
  • Settlement and seepage analysis by finite elements
  • Choice of soil properties for finite element analysis
  • Slope stability analysis by finite elements
