Slope stability, Soil nail wall, and Inclinometer Monitoring - Online Workshop

Gain expertise and confidence with step by step instructions!

8 PDH Credits Available

Beyond software, the seminar focuses both on theory and practice. Starting from simple examples to more advanced topics the worskhop is distilling years of slope stability, soil nail wall, and inclinometer experience. The workshop will build on solid fundamentals, and help engineers minimize uncertainties.
