The Cogan Project team is happy to invite you to the free webinar we organised on the Importance of Numerical Analysis for Understanding Rock Slope Behaviour.
This presentation demonstrates the role and use of numerical analysis by discontinuum and continuum modelling for the understanding of rock slope behavior. The objective is to find well-proven engineering solutions to slope stability problems. Following a short overview of the numerical methods available, FEM, DEM and FEDEM, the presentation considers two case studies.

Q & A Session
This webinar is the second of two sponsored by the COGAN project (link to first webinar at /events/nafems/2014/cogan_webinar/), which is funded by the EU under the Leonardo initiative. For some years there has been a need in the geotechnical industry to address the inconsistent implementation of increasingly powerful numerical analysis software (e.g. finite element analysis).
Previous benchmark studies have suggested that the inconsistency is primarily a result of users of analysis software lacking the necessary competency. Therefore, the primary goal of COGAN is to improve competency in geotechnical numerical analysis.
