Five day Course for Civil Engineers
On
Soil-Structure Interaction: Computer Applications and Material Models
(19th  23th January 2015)
at
Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar
VGEC Complex, Chandkheda, Ahmedabad - 382424

Course Objectives
The aim of the course is to provide the participants an understanding of effectively simulating the soil-structure interaction problems using computer applications and realistic material models. At the end of the course, the participants are expected to have fair understanding of:

  • Basics of Finite Difference and Finite Element Analysis
  • Realistic material models for structural materials, soils and interfaces/joints
  • Modeling of engineering systems and SoilStructure Interaction (SSI) using computer methods for a number of practical problems in geotechnical engineering.

Participants: The course is designed for (a) Civil Engineers engaged in design and construction of structures. (b) Senior professionals responsible for directing these activities. (c) Students, Teachers and Researchers

Course Faculty:

  • Dr. Chandrakant S. Desai, University of Arizona
  • Dr. Dhiman Basu, IIT Gandhinagar
  • Dr. Gaurav Srivastava, IIT Gandhinagar
  • Dr. Amit Prashant, IIT Gandhinagar

Course Contents:

Introduction to computer methods: Finite Element Method and Finite Difference Method; Constitutive models relevant to structural elements, geologic materials, interfaces and joints; Determination of material parameters and idealization of loading and boundary conditions; One-, two- and three-dimensional idealizations of structures such as axially and laterally loaded piles, group piles, footings, dams and embankments, slopes, retaining walls including reinforced systems, tunnels and caverns, pavements; Flow Through Porous Media: Seepage and consolidation; Dynamic analysis including liquefaction; Computer codes and practice sessions

Certificate:
Participants who successfully complete the course will be awarded a certificate.

Registration:

The course fee is Rs. 20,000/- (Rupees Twenty Thousand only) per participant. It includes course material, lunch, and tea breaks. The postgraduate students and faculty of civil engineering may request a discount in course fee.


Interested persons may register online at the course website (http://www.iitgn.ac.in/ssi2015/) or by sending their registration form (available on website) to IIT Gandhinagar.

Hi


Is this course also offered online?

I would be unable to attend the course in person because of logistical constraints, but I am very keen to learn about SSI.
