- Introduction to limit state design
- Overview of LimitState:GEO 3.0 technology and its use with Eurocode 7
- 'Factor on load' analysis of foundations
- 'Factor on strength 'analysis of slopes and retaining walls
- Soil reinforcement examples, including pullout and rupture
- Modelling of multiple water regimes
- Discover the benefits of the innovative technology used by LimitState:GEO
- See how LimitState:GEO can be used to rapidly determine the critical failure mechanism and margin of safety - for almost any type of geotechnical stability problem, including slopes, foundations and retaining walls.
- Learn how LimitState:GEO can be used to prepare designs in accordance with Eurocode7
- See how LimitState:GEO overcomes many of the inherent issues associated with hand calculations, 'single application' software programs and finite element packages.
At the event the benefits of LimitState:GEO 3.0 will be outlined and a range of practical examples will be used to illustrate how the software can be applied in practice. The originators of the software will be on hand to answer questions.
Who should attend?
The event will be of interest to practicing geotechnical engineers; civil and structural engineers and those with a responsibility for, or exposure to, geotechnical design. Current and potential future users of LimitState:GEO are welcome alike.
What’s different about LimitState:GEO?
Prior to the launch of LimitState:GEO, geotechnical engineers had to rely either on hand calculation methods, a suite of 'single application' software programs (focussed e.g. only on slope or retaining wall stability), or on significantly more complex finite element packages. With the new technology used by LimitState:GEO any type of stability problem can be solved - but much, much more straightforwardly than when using a finite element package. The software also fits in well with the partial factors approach used in EC7, which is generally independent of problem type.
