The UK Geotechnical Modeling Workshop: June 2-4, 2008
Located in a beautiful wooded valley in the heart of Shropshire stands the World's
First Iron Bridge. It's fitting that the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution,
which brought together innovation and engineering, will act as the setting to
learn, enhance and fine-tune your numerical modeling skills under the professional
guidance of GEO-SLOPE personnel.
The UK workshop has become a very popular event and has sold out well in advance
as many clients have returned to the workshop year after year.
This year you can attend for a full three-day session or a shortened session with
reduced content for two days. The two-day workshop will focus on SLOPE/W with introductory
sessions on both SEEP/W and SIGMA/W. More advanced SEEP/W, SIGMA/W and introductory
QUAKE/W sessions will be included on the third day.
Predicting Climate-Ground Interactions with VADOSE/W Basic
Landfill and mine waste cap design has typically been based on regulated design criteria,
simple water balance modeling (e.g., HELP model), or semi-rigorous finite element
or finite difference modeling (e.g., UNSAT-H, HYDRUS). These latter two models are
rigorous from a seepage solution standpoint, but are limited in their ability to
accurately predict the climate-ground interactions. VADOSE/W has been commercially
available for seven years in a two-dimensional formulation but
is now available in a one-dimensional Basic Edition
formulation at a significantly reduced cost. VADOSE/W is unique in
its formulation in that actual evaporation from a ground surface is based on the
stress state in the soil; in particular the temperature and relative humidity and
matric suction at the soil-climate interface.
Read the whole Detailed Example
and follow along in GeoStudio 2007 using the
VADOSE/W data file.
