The Laboratory of computational Geotechnical Engineering has been created in 2000 having as main objective the application of numerical analysis to Geotechnical Engineering. Its initial hardware includes 5 computers, peripheral units connected with the University network. Many personal computers have been enrich the capabilities of the lab together with two powerful servers (an HP with eight 8-cores processors and a FS with two 8-cores processors). The software includes finite element and finite difference programs such as FLAC 2D, FLAC 3D, SOFiSTiK. Some worksheet applications of simplified and empirical methods carried out within the process of students’ diploma thesis are also available. Both hardware and software are being substantially upgraded.
