Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Conquer Geotechnical Modelling with Confidence

Start time: 11:30 am AEDT. Learn how making safe, cost-effective and data-driven decisions, whether for simple or complex projects, can be improved by leveraging geotechnical modelling.
Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Conquer Geotechnical Modelling with Confidence

High rates of infrastructure expenditure are expected to continue, as both federal and local governments continue their economic recovery strategies.

To meet this growth and ensure stable and reliable infrastructure, geotechnical considerations are now more important than ever.

The capabilities to carry out geotechnical design and analysis in conjunction with other solutions, over multiple disciplines, can be improved within a connected data environment (CDE).

Join us Wednesday, 25th November as our industry speakers discuss how geotechnical considerations are important to all infrastructure projects, and how making safe, cost-effective and data-driven decisions, whether for simple or complex projects, can be improved by leveraging geotechnical modelling.

Speakers will discuss modern geotechnical modelling and analysis, address key trends and challenges and outline how to apply interoperability for a range of applications from excavations to embankments.

Key Themes

• Addressing the needs of modern geotechnical modelling and analysis using Bentley’s PLAXIS
• Applying interoperability with digital workflows for a range of applications: excavations, foundations, tunnels, slopes and embankments
• How users from around the world conquer simple and complex geotechnical projects
