Summary

The content of the course are the principles and capabilities of the utilization of finite elements method for the solution of various engineering problems, with special emphasis on the role of geotechnical. Students will learn the theoretical basis of this numerical method and the principle of discretization of given area, the various types of finite elements for application in one-dimensional, planar and spatial tasks. The aim is also to familiarize students with the practical use of this method in solving problems in geotechnical engineering and underground construction (the stability of slopes, embankments, spoil banks, the role of the stability of underground works (tunnels, etc.)) through a specialized geotechnical software (Plaxis, 3D Tunnel , Phases, etc.).
