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


Please note the new location: Hyatt House Pleasant Hill

2611 Contra Costa Blvd, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523

The seminar will start at 8:00am to allow for everyone to arrive.

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.
