Nikolaos Lesgidis, Ph.D.
In this full-day workshop, you will learn the basics of the design of complex deep excavation projects with advanced methods. The seminar will provide a strong theoretical background on the design of excavations with the Finite Element Analysis method, explain the methods and tricks for the design of tunnels, quay walls, and marine walls and cover the design of 3D excavation models and steel connections. The workshop will build on solid fundamentals and help engineers minimize uncertainties in deep excavation design.
The seminar focuses both on theory and practice. The attendees will have a chance to learn or refresh their knowledge of different deep excavation design methods and standards used worldwide, and they will have a chance to apply all the methods within advanced software applications. During the workshop, several excavation design types and models will be reviewed and simulated, extending the participant engineers' perception and knowledge on how to solve composite problems and provide economic alternative solutions.
