PROPOSAL FOR PROVISION OF A COURSE

ON:

COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN OF QUAY


WALLS AND OTHER PORT AND MARINE
STRUCTURES WITH PLAXIS 3D AND
GEO5 GEOTECHNICAL SOFTWARE

FOR NIGERIAN PORTS AUTHORITY

1st Floor, NSE Building, National Engineering Centre,
(Off National Mosque-Labour House Road), Central Business Area, Abuja.
: 08033469413, 08054890243 : info@techgradeconsulting.com

Date: Tue 2nd - 5th May, 2017

Venue: Compass Media House,


Isheri, Ogun State
OBJECTIVE
The objective of this course is to expose participants to the rudiment and
practices of structural analysis and design of both reinforced and steel
structures. The course will also includes practical application of the GEO5
design software to structural analysis and design of marine structures
particularly quay walls.

The GEO5 analytical package is designed to solve various geotechnical


problems and design checks including Eurocode7. The powerful and easy-
to-use package consists of individual programs with a consistent graphical
interface. Each program is used to analyze a different geotechnical task but
all modules communicate with each other in order to form the integrated
package.

The software will be used to analyses and design quays walls, including
retaining walls.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
At the end of the course, participants will have a practical understanding of:
Geotechnical design and analysis
Hydrological and hydraulic analysis of port structures
Structural analysis and design of concrete structures
Structural analysis and design of steel structures
Design of quay walls
Design of retaining walls
Structural detailing
Reading and Interpretation of structural drawings
