Overview

This lecture will present an anchor wall design under intricate conditions, involving deep competent rock, water presence, asymmetric loads, and potential tunnel interference will be shown.

It will be demonstrated how a highly accurate representation of the actual conditions on site was achieved. This includes leveraging 3D BIM and Plaxis, and using advanced modelling techniques that enable the visualization, analysis, and manipulation of complex structural and geological data.

One of the highlights involved incorporating site-specific features and construction details, ensuring the developed solutions align with the practical construction methodologies, and can be seamlessly executed on-site.
