||Exam and course work|
After the course student has a basic knowledge about the elasticity theory and plasticity and how they are applied for soil modeling. Student is able to conduct independently versatile calculation analysis with finite element program Plaxis 2D, to conduct deformation analysis as a function of time, to conduct safety/ULS analysis to analyze the results obtained.
