Dates: 17th of October to 28th of November

Standard Unemployed Or Student
$260 $180

Introduction

Settlement is one of the most important components in the design and analysis of the foundations. Foundation settlement need to be accurately estimated to ensure stability of buildings, embankments, dams, towers, bridges, and any high-cost structures.

Settle 3 is a three-dimensional program for the analysis of settlement and consolidation under foundation, embankment and surface excavation. Settle 3 can be used for a wide variety of geotechnical analysis and design, such as shallow and deep foundation, road and railway embankments on soft soil, water retention and tailings dam, ground improvement, tunnels, liquefaction analysis and construction sequencing.

With increasing demands for using numerical modeling software in settlement analysis, it is paramount to understand the principles of settlement and consolidation theory, selection of correct soil parameters, calibration of the models and validity of numerical outputs. This course is designed to deliver theoretical and practical understanding of settlement analysis.

Course objectives

This course is designed for the attendees to understand theories and principles of settlement and consolidation analysis to calculate settlement under buildings, embankments, dams, towers, bridges or any other foundations. Step-by-step Settle 3 model setup and analysis for different case studies will help attendees to solve practical problems related to settlement of foundations and increase confidence in analysis and design.
