Course Objective

The objective of this course is to provide users with a comprehensive introduction to the modelling techniques used in GeoStudio Standard suite which includes SLOPE/W, SEEP/W and SIGMA/W. Key features essential for proper usage of the software to setup an analysis model will be covered.

Participants will learn the basics of using GeoStudio Standard suite to perform limit equilibrium slope stability analysis, finite elements seepage analysis and finite element stress-deformation analysis.
