GFAS– Geotechnical and F.E.M. analysis system
 
07:51
G.F.A.S. (Geotechnical and F.E.M. analysis System) software for the mechanical analysis of soil using finite elements method . The traditional methods of analysis based on the concept of LIMIT EQUILIBRIUM (LEM) do not allow the determination of stresses and deformations in the analyzed volumes. These limitations have led to the need to integrate the conventional analysis with analysis based on numerical models. These methods use the numerical evaluation of the problem and do not require simplifications to the calculation. The software G.F.A.S. offers an English or Italian user interface. The video tutorial has been recorded with Italian user interface and has English comments in the most significant passages. The F.E.M. method is applied to a calculation of bearing capacity and the results of Prandl's theory are compared.

FEA Introduction & General Use
 
56:15
High-end projects with complex geometry and loading pose a variety of unique challenges for engineers. It is essential to use refined analysis methods since conventional methods are not accepted by design codes for these projects. These difficulties have caused engineers to use finite element software for these analyses. However, the limited functionality of these programs has caused engineers to typically convert their finite element models into 1D elements in an effort to save time and effort. This leads to a significant reduction of the accuracy of the calculations as well as designs that are over-conservative. midas FEA has been specifically designed to overcome all of these challenges. Its advanced functionality enables you to create highly detailed models with plate and solid elements that produce equally precise and reliable results. With midas FEA you will be able to perform high-end analyses with unprecedented levels of confidence and efficiency. You will also be able to greatly expand your range of design capabilities. Projects that may have been beyond your scope will now be attainable since midas FEA greatly expedites work processes that previously required exorbitant amounts of time and effort to complete. Engineers have widely used midas FEA for projects such as plain and reinforced concrete structures, concrete damage and cracking, plain and reinforced masonry structures, composite structures, steel structures, foundations, and offshore structures. This webinar will elaborate on the advanced functionalities of midas FEA compared to frame modeling software. Session will also include the discussion over the software’s pre, post and analysis capabilities. The viewers will be able to conveniently grasp the entire work process of midas FEA.

2017 H. Bolton Seed Medal Lecture: Numerical Analysis of Stability and Risk in Highly Variable Soils
 
58:45
2017 H. Bolton Seed Medal Lecture: Numerical Analysis of Stability and Risk in Highly Variable Soils D. Vaughan Griffiths Ph.D., P.E., D.GE, F.ASCE, Colorado School of Mines There has been a rapid growth of interest in risk assessment, and the use of probabilistic methods in geotechnical engineering. This is a logical development, since soils and rocks are among the most variable of all engineering materials, and geotechnical engineers must often make do with materials they are dealt with at any particular site. Analysis of a typical stability problem may lead to a “probability of failure”, as opposed to the more traditional “factor of safety”, representing a fundamental shift in the way engineers need to think about the suitability of their designs. The lecture will include results of stability analyses of variable soils by the finite element method, and include a discussion of the factor of safety and its relationship to the probability of failure. Some methods of probabilistic analysis with varying levels of complexity will be described. The H. Bolton Seed Medal Lecture is given annually by the recipient of the H. Bolton Seed Medal for outstanding contributions to teaching, research or practice in geotechnical engineering. BIO: Dr. Griffiths was selected by the Geo-Institute Board of Governors to receive the 2017 H. Bolton Seed Medal “For his innovative software developments, publications, textbooks and professional short courses on finite elements and probabilistic methods. His highly-cited work on finite element stability analysis has transformed the way engineers perform slope stability analysis in practice.” In selecting him for this award, the committee particularly noted his reputation as a pioneer in numerical modeling.

SoilVision: Solutions for Geotechnical Engineers
 
02:12
Our Vision: Our vision is to provide cutting-edge software products to geotechnical engineers, geoenvironmental engineers and hydrogeologists worldwide. We offer numerical modeling software that embraces simultaneously saturated / unsaturated soil continuum. The primary application areas are: - water flow through porous media; - shear strength limit equilibrium analysis with applications in slope stability, bearing capacity and lateral earth pressure; - stress deformation; - heat flow through unfrozen and frozen soils; - air flow through unsaturated soils; and - contaminant transport of chemicals through diffusion and dispersion. Most software modules are designed to perform analyses for one-, two- and three-dimensional environments. All of our software is designed to be comprehensive and extremely robust in their application. Various application modules can be combined in either a coupled or uncoupled manner. Our finite element modeling software offers leading-edge features such as automatic mesh generation and automatic mesh refinement which greatly reduce convergence problems as well as model creation time. The SVSOILS™ (formerly SoilVision) software was developed out of a need to better understand, manage and estimate appropriate saturated soil properties and unsaturated soil property functions. A high-quality database of previously measured soil properties, along with knowledge from experienced engineers forms the basis of the SVSOILS™ knowledge-based system. SoilVision Systems Ltd. is on the cutting edge of applying database technology to the management of soil properties and the analysis of soil processes. Our goal is to put the satisfaction of our customers first and foremost. We are committed to constantly improving the ease-of-use and functionality of our software in response to feedback from users. We are committed to making your experience with our software satisfying and helpful. Our Philosophy: The guiding philosophy behind our finite element products is that the modeling effort should be focused on the problem - not the finite element numerical method. Most currently available software forces the manual or semi-automatic generation of the finite element mesh. The user will often spend hours generating a finite element mesh based on geometry only to fight convergence problems because the mesh is not reference based on critical problem variables. All of our finite element products offer not only finite element mesh generation based on geometry but automatic mesh refinement based on any relevant problem variable. Because of this feature, our customers can reasonably expect a reduction in modeling effort between 50-80%.

Direct Shear Test by Discrete Element Method (DEM)
 
04:01
From excavating to dam or consolidation to earthquake, granular materials play a big role in many engineering and natural phenomena. In geotechnical engineering, depending on the volume and the magnitude of the applied forces, granular materials have big portion in our issues. There are two common problems in geotechnical engineering that are called strength and deformation problems. So, we need to analyses the behavior of granular materials to estimate the strength parameters of soils. In this case, one of the most useful methods is direct shear test. The advantages of this test over other shear tests are the simplicity, and the ability to test under differing saturation, drainage, and consolidation conditions. On the other hand, this test has difficulties in measuring pore water pressure in undrained conditions. Meanwhile, monitoring the behavior of particles is almost impossible or tough by all the tests in laboratory. So, the necessity to use numerical modeling methods in modeling granular materials is obvious. In most traditional continuum theories, like old finite element methods, soil mass models as a rigid block. Since direct element method does not have this problem, while it can model soils by distinct particles, it would be an ideal method to model and analyses the granular materials. DEM, which is recently becoming widely used, simulates the individual dynamics of all particles by numerically integrating their acceleration, which results from contact forces.

Numerical Modelling of Raft Foundation

Soil is a complex multiphase material its stress, strain and strength are represented by pressure dependency with coupling between shear and volumetric behavior. With these complexities it is not possible to think in terms of developing a completely generalized model for all soils. It is fundamental to tailor the modeling of material behavior to the particular problem of interest and the required accuracy of solution. Perhaps this explains why the finite element method has been used in many fields of engineering practice for over thirty years, however it is only relatively recently that it has begun to be widely used for analyzing geotechnical problems. The main objective of this course is to provide the undergraduate student with an insight into the use of the finite element method in simulation of geotechnical engineering problems. The methodology that will be followed in this research to achieve its objectives are directed towards the following points: Presentation of the theory, assumptions and approximations involved in finite element analysis; Description of several constitutive models that commonly used, and explore their strengths and weaknesses. Provide sufficient field case studies and solved examples so that students can make judgements as to the credibility of numerical results that they may obtain, or review, in the future. These practical examples are also used to demonstrate the restrictions, advantages and disadvantages of numerical analysis.

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS 3.1 Introduction to finite element method The finite element technique is an effective tool to find out the numerical solution of wide range of engineering investigations. The method is general sufficient to deal with any complicated form or geometry, for any material under various boundary and loading circumstances. The generality of the finite element method fits the assessment necessity of today's complicated engineering structures and designs where closed form solutions of governing equilibrium equations are normally no longer available. In addition, it's far a green design device by means of which designers can perform parametric design studies by means of considering diverse layout instances, (unique shapes, substances, loads, and so on.) and examine them to choose the optimum design. The method originated in the aerospace industry as a device to analyze strain in a complicated airframe structures. It grows out of what became known as the matrix evaluation technique applied in aircraft design. The technique has received extended popularity among both researchers and practitioners. The simple concept of finite element technique is that a body or shape can be divided into small elements of finite dimensions known as "finite factors". The unique body or the structure is then taken into consideration, as an assemblage of these elements linked at a finite variety of ioints called nodes. 3.4. Advantages of FEM The properties of each element are evaluated one at a time, so an apparent advantage is that we can comprise exclusive material properties for every detail. Thus nearly any diploma of non-homogeneity can be protected. There is no limit directly to the form of medium; hence arbitrary and irregular shapes motive no problem like any numerical approximations FEM is primarily based at the idea of description Nevertheless, as either the versions or residual technique, the era acknowledges the multidimensional non-stop but also requires no separate interpolation system to increase the approximate solution to each point with the continuum One of the essential advantages of FEM is that it uses boundary conditions within the shape of assembled equations. This is incredibly a simple system and requires for no special generation. Rather than requiring every trial solution to fulfill boundary situations, one prescribes the situations after acquiring the algebraic equations for individual finite elements. 3.5. Applications of FEM Finite element technique is the perfect tool in research of plane structures related to static evaluation of wings, systems of rockets and missiles, dynamic evaluation, reaction to random hundreds and periodic masses. In mechanical design, pressure concentration troubles, stress analysis of stress vessels, dynamic evaluation of mechanical linkages can be successfully dealt the use of finite element technique. The precise software of the finite detail method inside the three important categories of boundary value problems, namely equilibrium of constant country or time independent troubles, Eigen value troubles, and propagation or brief issues. In the equilibrium troubles steady country displacement or strain distribution is located for a strong mechanic's issues, temperature or heat flux distribution within the case of heat transfer issues. Referring to Eigen propagation or brief issues, the reaction of the body underneath time varying force is discovered inside the location of stable mechanics. Finite element technique finds its application inside the discipline of civil engineering in wearing out the static evaluation of trusses, frames and bridges. The dynamic evaluation of the shape is to achieve herbal frequencies, modes and reaction of the structures to periodic loads. Nuclear engineering also makes use of finite element approach concept inside the static and dynamic characterization of its systems such as nuclear stress vessels, containment structure and dynamic response of reactor factor containment structures. Even the Biomedical engineering applies finite detail approach, for impact analysis of skulls. Finite element method may be carried out to evaluation of excavation, underground openings and dynamic evaluation of dam reservoir systems, which come below Geomechanics.
