GEOSLOPE Intl. 1/2 day Short Course on Slope/W Software

Presented by Chris Kelln, PhD, P.Eng., Vice President of Engineering

We are bringing down Chris Kelln, the VP of Engineering at GEOSLOPE International for this 1/2 day short course and hands-on workshop on their popular software program, Slope/W.

This half-day workshop will focus on slope stability analysis using SLOPE/W, with an emphasis on integrating pore-water pressures and stresses from SEEP/W and SIGMA/W, respectively. Topics will include an overview of the software user interface, a brief review of limit equilibrium theory and convergence, and the stability analysis of geotechnical structures in response to transient pore-water pressure changes. Other topics will include modeling reinforcement and an introduction to GeoStudio 3D (time permitting).
Attendees will be provided with a 30-day activation license along with the necessary resources for hands-on exercises.

GEOSLOPE normally offers workshops that follow a 2-day or 3-day format, covering SLOPE/W & SEEP/W + SIGMA/W (3-day), but as your time is valuable we are condensing the course and focusing just on Slope-W for this half-day workshop.

Class will be limited to 60 attendees and include a hot breakfast, morning break and free parking at the Hyatt House in Pleasanton. Located in the Hacienda Business Park, the Hyatt House is only 1 mile from the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station.
