    Introduction

    This course covers basic and more advanced computational geotechnics using the software packages OptumG2 and OptumG3. At the end of the course students will be able to:

    • Compute bearing capacities of typical geostructures in 2D and 3D
    • Compute factors of safety for slopes, retaining walls and similar structures
    • Simulate deep excavations using relevant soil models
    • Simulate the construction of embankments on soft soil.

    The course is presented through video tutorials and multimedia content within the Moodle virtual platform, with exercises like tests and practical cases, along with live webinars.

    Kristian Krabbenhoft received his MSc and PhD from the Technical University of Denmark in 2000 and 2003 respectively. He then joined the University of Newcastle, Australia before moving to the University of Liverpool, UK where he currently holds the Chair of Geomechanics. He has held visiting positions at a number of universities including Ecole Polytechnique and ENS (France), DTU (Denmark), Caltech (USA), and Tsinghua University (China). His research interests include theoretical and computational geomechanics, off-shore geotechnics, and constitutive modelling.

    All of our courses are offered 100% online, through our intuitive Virtual Campus. Topics are taught through:

    • – Videos
    • – Interactive multimedia content
    • – Live classes
    • – Texts
    • – Case studies
    • – Evaluation exercises
    • – Additional documentation

     

    The content is updated in each new course edition, so that knowledge is acquired around the latest news and state-of-the-art geotechnical engineering technology.

    One of the most interesting aspects of our courses is the use of live videoconferences, in which teachers and students interact in a continuous exchange of knowledge and problem solving. In addition to this, students can make use of the platform’s forum, a meeting point where they can interact with teachers and other students.

    A tutoring system will also be established by email, which will resolve any possible doubts about the course, and which will serve as a point of connection for students with specific questions on each module.

    Students can also download all course documentation, including texts, videos, video conferences and exercises.

    The course is aimed at engineers at all levels. Engineers not familiar with computational methods will receive an introduction to those and more experienced engineers will be introduced to a range of new methods that will allow them to conduct analysis and design in a more efficient manner.

    At the end of the course, and as accreditation of knowledge acquired and of the technical and practical training, students who correctly complete the corresponding evaluation tests of the geotechnical engineering course will obtain an academic certificate issued by Ingeoexpert. This digital certificate is protected by Blockchain technology, making it unique and tamper-proof, thus enabling companies to verify its authenticity.

    It can also be downloaded by students, forwarded by email and shared on social networks, as well as embedded on any website. You can see an example here.

    Computational methods are an essential part of modern geotechnical engineering consultancy. The course provides a comprehensive overview of these methods and introduces the students to a range of new tools that are of great use in engineering practice.
