Seminar PLAXIS dan Workshop PLAXIS 3D

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong. Posted in Past Courses

 27-28-29 Juni 2012                                                     

 Latar Belakang dan Tujuan:

Dengan semakin dikenal dan semakin banyaknya pengguna perangkat lunak PLAXIS dalam aplikasi dunia geoteknik Indonesia, tentunya diperlukan suatu sarana untuk mendiskusikan permasalahan-permasalahan yang dihadapi dalam penggunaan perangkat lunak ini. Mulai dari pemilihan parameter tanah, pemilihan model tanah, hingga ke pemodelan bangunan geoteknik yang dihadapi. Disamping itu, apakah pemodelan cukup dilakukan secara dua dimensi dengan menggunakan PLAXIS 2D ataukah diperlukan analisa secara tiga dimensi dengan menggunakan PLAXIS 3D.  Untuk itu Jurusan Teknik Sipil BINUS University bekerja sama dengan distributor tunggal PLAXIS di Indonesia, menyelenggarakan Seminar PLAXIS dan Workshop PLAXIS 3D.


Seminar terbuka untuk para pengguna PLAXIS yang ingin menyampaikan makalahnya dan menyajikan pengalaman / permasalahan / hasil aplikasi dalam proyek-proyek geoteknik yang dihadapinya. Peserta yang ingin menyampaikan makalahnya  dipersilakan menghubungi panitia sebelum tanggal 10 Juni dan menyampaikan makalahnya sebelum  tanggal 20 Juni. Pemakalah yang terpilih akan dapat menyajikan makalahnya.

Workshop PLAXIS 3D terbuka untuk para para konsultan, kontraktor, akademisi (dosen dan mahasiswa),  dan para praktisi dunia teknik sipil pada umumnya serta para praktisi geoteknik khususnya.

Format Seminar dan Workshop:

SEMINAR – 27 Juni 2012 – Seminar dilakukan dengan presentasi dari para pemakalah, yang diharapkan menyajikan permasalahan geoteknik yang dihadapinya, pemodelan dengan PLAXIS, pemilihan parameter, pemilihan soil model, hasil analisa, kesulitan-kesulitan yang dihadapi dalam pemodelan, hasil akhir yang dicapai dan bila ada membandingkan hasil analisa Plaxis dengan kinerja di lapangan. Pemakalah utama, Dr. William Cheang dan Ir. Gouw Tjie Liong M.Eng, ChFC, akan membawakan perbagai SOIL MODEL di dalam PLAXIS. Dan akan memandu jalannya diskusi. Setiap pemakalah mendapatkan waktu sekitar 20-30 menit untuk menyajikan dan mendisuksikan makalahnya.

 WORKSHOP –  28-29 Juni 2012 – Workshop akan mengenalkan/ mengajarkan / memandu para peserta dalam penggunaan program PLAXIS 3D.


Life Principles in 5 Simple Chinese Letters

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong. Posted in General, Life

I learned from my Moslem friends that Prophet Mohammad ever said: (in Indonesian) “Belajarlah Sampai Ke Negeri Cina”, which English translation roughly means: “Learn, if necessary as far as China.”; I found that indeed a lot to learn from Chinese language itself. Recently, I learned the LIFE PRINCIPLES from the following five Chinese letters: “卡, 尖,斌,笑,容”

The first letter: 卡 (Ka, means: card). Everyone in this modern world, cannot live without cards, which Chinese letter is 卡. Almost all of us have cards in our pocket, from a bus card, ATM to credit card. There is a hidden meaning in the Chinese letter. 卡 (Kha) consists of two letters; the upper part, 上 (Shang), means top or up; the lower part, 下 (Xia), means bottom or down. Realizing it or not, every one of us knows that in life sometime we are at the top, and some other time we are at the bottom. Many of us become arrogant when we are at the top, we forget the law of nature which said what is up must and will (some day) go down. So, the letter quietly said, when we are at the top, don’t be arrogant, when we are at the bottom don’t be stressed and despair!! Living in the society, we must be able to mingle, not only with the upper level, but also with the lower level. We must always remember this, when we hold a card in our hand.


Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong. Posted in Life

  1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have                   multiplied to a few billion . When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
  2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person ‘s lifetime.
