GeoStudio Fundamentals Series: SLOPE/W & SEEP/W

GeoStudio Fundamentals Series: SLOPE/W & SEEP/W

GEOSLOPE is offering the GeoStudio Fundamentals webinar series to support our customers during this challenging time. This free, one-time-only, series provides training similar to our paid workshops for SLOPE/W and SEEP/W. The webinar sessions will be once a week over several weeks. Multiple times are offered for each webinar to ensure that all who wish to attend may find a time that fits into their schedule.

Schedule and Details

SLOPE/W Session 1 - Finished
Date: April 22/23, 2020
Description: This webinar will review the history and fundamental concepts of the Limit Equilibrium (and SLOPE/W) formulation, the main components of the GeoStudio window, and a simple SLOPE/W analysis.

SLOPE/W Session 2 - Finished
Date: April 29/30, 2020
Description: Review of the key components of stability analyses, and demonstration of how to set up the geometry, material properties, trial slip surfaces, and pore water pressure conditions.

SLOPE/W Session 3 - Finished
Date: May 6/7, 2020
Description: This webinar will cover the suction strength options in SLOPE/W, and the fundamental concepts and a demonstration of how to apply reinforcements in stability analyses.

SEEP/W Session 1 - Finished
Date: May 20/21, 2020
Description: This webinar will review the numerical modelling methodology, applicable theory and finite element solution for SEEP/W, and review the material properties and definition.

SEEP/W Session 2 - Finished
Date: May 27/28, 2020
Description: This webinar will review the steps for setting up a SEEP/W analysis in GeoStudio, and demonstrate these steps in multiple embankment dam examples.

SEEP/W Session 3
Date: June 3/4, 2020
Description: This webinar will review typical seepage analyses, such as modelling drains and rapid drawdown (with coupled SLOPE/W analyses), and discuss numerical issues, including convergence issues and critical gradients.

Additional Information

The webinars are hosted on GoToWebinar, and vary between 1 and 2 hours long. Participants will NOT have access to a recording following the webinar. Therefore, you must sign up for a time that you can attend. Participants can join the session by using a Mac, PC, or a mobile device. Questions can be sent in using the chat feature in the GoToWebinar window.
