TRAINING on The APPLICATION of GEOTECHNICAL SOFTWARE (Plaxis and Geo5) – 25-27 Feb 2014

Pelatihan Aplikasi Software Geoteknik (PLAXIS dan Geo5)

Garbage in Garbage out… sound very familiar!! But, many still think they can master a geotechnical software by merely reading through the tutorial in the manual. Realized it or not, many tend to bypass the in depth learning on the geotechnical background of the software they used. Many mistakes that can lead to fatal condition have been seen! For examples: Applying at rest earth pressure coefficient (ko condition) for non horizontal ground; Unable to differentiate between gravity loading and ko condition;  Wrong modelling of undrained condition (never heard of Undrained A, B, C); Wrong parameters input; Wrong modelling, etc. The most dangerous is: THEY THINK THEY KNOW but THEY ACTUALLY NOT!!  This short course shall teach the participants how to use Plaxis and Geo5 software in a right manner, it shall discuss the geotechnical background on each of the modelling.

Gouw Tjie Liong, Ir., M.Eng, ChFC, PhD

Dr. Gouw is a certified Professional Geotechnical Engineer. He has been working in the field of Geotechnical Engineering since 1984. His expertise covering geotechnical investigation, soil instrumentation, deep foundation and excavation for high rise buildings, pile load testing (Static and PDA), pile integrity testing (PIT), sonic logging test, vibration monitoring, slope stability, ground anchors, pumping test, dewatering, micropiles, tunnelling and ground improvement works, e.g. dynamic compaction, vertical drain, vibro-compaction, geosynthetic and grouting. The jobs cover more than 180 projects in Indonesia, Singapore and Srilanka. He has a great passion in the teaching and disseminating of geotechnical engineering knowledge. He serves as lecturer since late 1984. Currently, he serves as Associate Professor at Podomoro University, Jakarta for undergraduate study, and for post graduate students at Universitas Katolik Parahyangan, Bandung, Indonesia. He also conduct regular geotechnical training for engineers. He also chaired the Indonesian Chapter of International Geosynthetics Society since 2006. He has published 80 papers and 22 technical notes.
