This demonstration video intends to illustrate some modelling strategies on how to use PLAXIS 3D tools to design a shaft foundation with reinforcements.
The designing tools present in Structures mode of PLAXIS 3D can easily be used to help design a shaft foundation with reinforcements. Using such tools will speed up the designing process and will assure high mesh quality since the creation of further geometrical elements is based on the existing ones.
