LimitState:GEO Launch Event
To assess the stability of slopes, foundations and walls engineers have traditionally relied on a series of separate software tools, each based on separate theory. After attending the event you will discover that a single software program - LimitState:GEO - can be used for these problems and many others, giving you better solutions and potentially saving you considerable time and effort.
Attendees should also end up with a better understanding of limit state analysis and the factors influencing geotechnical stability.
After briefly outlining the theory underpinning LimitState:GEO, we will use case studies to demonstrate how the software can be applied in practice. A special session will be devoted to Eurocode 7, and there will be live demonstrations of the software so that you can see just how easy it is to use.
LimitState:GEO will be applied to various problems including those involving:
- Retaining walls
- Foundations on sloping ground with layers
- Combinations of the above
LimitState:GEO features to be explored will include:
- Ability to create problems of arbitrary geometry (as well as 'standard' problems using inbuilt 'Wizards')
- Solution of problems with tension cracks (including water-filled tension cracks)
- Report which allows users to rapidly 'sanity check' the output
The originators of the software will be on hand to answer questions.
Benefits of attending
The unique features in LimitState:GEO enable you to model geotechnical stability problems much more easily than was previously possible.
Who Should Attend?
The seminar is designed to benefit practising senior geotechnical engineers, geotechnical engineers, civil engineers and consultants. Topics will be relevant to both potential and current users of geotechnical analysis and design software.
Speakers to include:
Colin Smith, who obtained his PhD after studying in the internationally renowned Geotechnical and Environmental Research group at the University of Cambridge. He co-devised the novel numerical procedure (DLO) which lies at the heart of LimitState:GEO, is a co-founder of LimitState Ltd, and also teaches geotechnics at the University of Sheffield.
Matthew Gilbert, who is a chartered civil engineer and has many years experience of developing novel ultimate limit state analysis and design software applications. He is currently Managing Director of LimitState Ltd.
