Webinars & News
Our expert knowledge for you!
Software is a tool that provides the user with reproducible results, enables complex evaluations in the shortest possible time and documents results. When operating these tools, the user's previous knowledge is crucial. For job starters, career changers and anyone who wants to refresh their specialist knowledge, we offer one-day seminars for a fee in which the professional handling of GGU software solutions is taught.
In addition, we organize free "webinars" on various geotechnical topics at irregular intervals. A webinar is an online conference to which you can log in via an Internet link. You will then see and hear the live presentation of our speaker. These live presentations will be recorded and are then available in the video archive.
In the case of more complicated geometries and difficult groundwater conditions, it is possible to investigate hydraulic heave and uplift in excavations using GGU-3D-SSFLOW and GGU-UPLIFT.
Our expert Prof. Dr. Uwe Glabisch will provide you with informations on how to use the programs and how to calculate and evaluate results. You can watch the video recording of this webinar free of charge after you have registered with your name and e-mail address.
This webinar will demonstrate the GGU-DOLPHIN program’s ability to analyse and design dolphins. Both the Blum’s method and the p-y-method can be applied. The Recommendations of the Committee for Waterfront Structures “EAU” presents both methods as equivalent and possible ways to design dolphins. Depending on the application, dolphin piles are exposed to different actions. Breasting dolphins must be capable to accept the actions exerted by the mooring process. Design is performed by specifying the ship's…
This webinar will demonstrate the GGU-SETTLE program’s ability to analyse foundation settlements using any desired shape of foundations. Loads, meaning the stresses on the baseline of the foundation can be varied linearily in all directions. Settlement depressions, stress distributions, resulting subgrade reaction moduli and the mutual influence of foundations can be analyzed. The influence of vibrodisplacement compaction after Priebe can be investigated. And – as with every GGU program - the comprehensive…
This webinar will demonstrate the GGU-DRAWDOWN program’s ability to analyze multiple well installations and sump pumping after Davidenkoff. Rectangular, circular and polygonal excavation pits of any shape can be analyzed. The influence of open water, confined aquifers and sheet pile walls can be taken into consideration. The program has optimization routines for the well number, the radius and the well depth. And – as with every GGU program - the comprehensive graphical evaluation options allow the…
This webinar will demonstrate the GGU-SLAB program’s ability to analyse slabs using the subgrade reaction modulus and the constrained modulus methods. To solve the differential equation which we will have a look at a little later the finite-element-method is employed. Slabs with varying thicknesses and varying material properties can be examined. The subgrade modulus profile can be varied with almost no restraints. The constrained modulus distribution can be defined with stratigraphic profiles. For both…
This webinar will demonstrate the GGU-RETAIN program’s ability not only to design a retaining wall for a single – and final – depth of an excavation pit, but also to have a close look at state variables like moments, shear forces, displacements etc., which vary with different phases of the excavation. Additionally our expert Prof. Uwe Glabisch will lead you through the menu of the program GGU-RETAIN to outline its competence to compute the state of a dismantling, meaning here to cut a row of anchors and to…
