Project: Pile Raft Design
Title: FEM (finite element method model) modelling of piled raft foundations in two and three dimensions.
1-Each Person needs to submit a report separately about his/her individual work (submit one PDF)
2-Report should be professional with a proper cover page, table of content, sections, suitable headings and a list of references at the end.
3-Report should include the following parts:
Executive Summary of the modelling you have done (0.5 pages)
Introduction/background (1-5 pages): Explaining the background of projects and review of relevant literature.
Aims of the project (1 -2 pages): Basically what are you simulating?
PLAXIS 2D Modelling dimensions and geometry with 1-2 screenshots of your model (1-3 pages)
Summary of the materials properties and extra assumptions used in your PLAXIS 2D model (1-3 pages)
Explaining about calculations steps supplemented with 1 screenshot of the completed calculations steps (1-2 pages)
Reporting the outputs in terms of graphs and explaining how did you obtain them(e.g. deformations, stresses, pore water pressure, settlement); 2-5 pages
Discussion of results (2-5 pages)
List of references (0.5-2 pages)
Important Points to be considered
PDF size should not be larger than 8MB.
Any figure/table/text/etc which is not yours should be referenced properly; otherwise, it is considered plagiarism.
Plagiarism is serious and may results in you failing the subject or being excluded from the course.
