D-Stability is Deltares’ software to model the failure of a slope along a slip plane, so called macro stability. This basic course enables engineers to use the software in a responsible way and get acquainted with the theoretical background. At the end of the course, all functionality of D-Stability ought to be understood.
This course teaches you to model the stability of an embankment with D-Stability. Practical knowledge is gained based upon a number of exercises. Based upon cases under supervision of an experienced designer, you practice with the different Limit Equilibrium Methods.
The following subjects will be covered during the course:
In advance of the course, you need to install the required software on your own PC.
The course material and language will be in English.
This course is aimed at the geotechnical engineer or PhD student who wants to gain both theoretical and practical experience in Macro Stability. It is also aimed at people who want to get a better insight into available D-Stability analysis for review purposes. More background information about the probabilistic assessment of geotechnical structures can be gained in the course “reliability and risk analysis.”
