Answer Hour programs are short, interactive presentations with Bentley experts designed to address topics and issues that are currently trending among users and administrators.

PLAXIS offers many ways of defining the model geometry. In all cases the geometry will be automatically intersected and a finite element mesh will be generated before a calculation is performed with the goal of handling the geotechnical design.

In this session we will provide a short presentation on how PLAXIS 2D and 3D handles the model geometry, and:

  • suggest how to deal with a complex definition;
  • explain about various ways of performing checks to ensure your model is ready for a calculation;
  • answer some questions we see often in our support inbox.

Users participating in this interactive course are asked to bring their questions so that we can try and clarify how PLAXIS can handle your case.

Bentley Answer Hours are open to all Bentley users, free of charge. To view prior sessions, across multiple topics, see Recordings On-Demand.
