This course is aimed for students with a civil engineering background and interested to have certified professional training in the Finite Element Method, with a focus on Tunneling. The goal of this course is to give the students a brief understanding of the Finite Element Method and to provide the necessary knowledge using one of the most advanced FEA software – CivilFEM Powered by Marc®, which can then be applied directly in civil engineering consulting companies, scientific research institutes/ universities and any other design & build civil engineering contractors.
With this objective in mind, the course is completely structured into software applications and practical subjects that include professional software currently used in the market, such as CivilFEM Powered by Marc®.
The main pre-requisite for this course would be undergraduate and/ or post-graduate courses in Rock Mechanics, Soil Mechanics and/ or Computational Geomechanics. An introductory Finite Element Analysis course would be highly recommended, but this is not mandatory, as a summary of the methodology will be presented within the course.
The objectives of this course are to consolidate the foundations of the Finite Element Method, by thinking mainly about its application in civil engineering structural analysis, although the basic ideas can be generalized without any difficulty. Furthermore, it should be noted that the subject starts with the most basic concepts, initially treated intuitively in order to allow them to be easily assimilated by the students without any knowledge in finite element analysis.
The Computational Geomechanics with CivilFEM course provides 2D and 3D soil & rock mechanics solutions using any combination of beam, shell and solid elements to model tunneling supports (rockbolts, trusses, anchorages, shotcrete, steel fiber reinforced shotcrete) and lining (concrete, steel, reinforced concrete, segmental lining), and solves complex structural and soil-structure interaction problems.
