The Finite Element Method is the most flexible and powerful tool to analyze and design engineering systems. Thanks to its user-friendly approach, Optum G2 is a software that allows engineers to perform finite element analysis of geotechnical problems in a fast and efficient way.
This course introduces the basics and principles of the finite element method, emphasizing its practical application to fundamental problems of geotechnical engineering. The training has a marked practice-oriented component, with hands-on examples and case studies based on Optum G2.
The course is intended for construction professionals, civil and environmental engineers, geologists that have a first experience with finite element modelling and wish to learn the capabilities of the software OPTUM G2.
