Engineering and Innovation

We offer on-site, online and tailored training on full numerical analysis using the finite element analysis (FEA) method. Here are some examples of modules available to book now and all include a balanced mixture of theory and interactive workshop exercises/case studies to help reinforce the concepts.

1. Introduction to FEA modelling in geotechnics plus workshop
2. Introduction to validation and verification of FEA models plus workshop
3. Mohr-Coulomb soil model and foundation workshop
4. Nonlinear analysis and advanced soil model workshop
5. An introduction to 2D FEA for tunnelling and underground space
6. Undrained analysis using FEA including workshop
7. Basement construction using the FEA method
8. Advanced 2D FEA for tunnelling and underground space
9. Multi-stage excavation and groundwater modelling workshop
10. Slope Stability with the FEA method and workshop
11. Introduction to three-dimensional (3D) FEA modelling and case studies
12. Advanced 3D FEA for tunnelling and underground space






“Excellent Finite Element course with clear explanations and good slides” Jim Martin (Geotechnical Engineer & Director, Byland Engineering Limited) 

“I’m enjoying the course so far and thanks for all your efforts”  Jon Spyvee (Associate, Byrne Looby) 

“This course was very engaging and provided an excellent basis for understanding and using FEA from the basics. Dr Andrew Mar was very open to questions and adapting the course material to demonstrate the answers” Rachel Salter (Geotechnical Engineer, Byland)

“Dr Andrew Mar was able to offer us a bespoke numerical modelling training course to suit our specific requirements” 

“The technical content by Dr Andrew Mar was exemplary and provided a sound understanding of the mechanics of analysis”

“This has given us a sound basis to further develop our competency in FEA analyses” James Binns (Director, Byland Engineering Limited)
