Why 3D?

Course Information

Should you design and analyze in 3D?

For today’s infrastructure demands, geotechnical considerations are coming to the forefront. As infrastructure assets are crucially linked to subsurface environments, they are vulnerable. Learn why 3D analysis is not only important but crucial.

Engineers involved in safe design traditional analyze in 2D. As trends and technology advance, users now have access to new accepted methods in 3D analysis which are emerging as a more robust and more accurate form of solving stability challenges, allowing a more rigorous calculation for the true factor of safety or probability.


Dr. Murray Fredlund, Ph.D., P.Eng.
