Predict missing CPT points and get empirical settlement with CPT points in Settle3

Explore the fundamental principles of the simulation of CPT points with Sparse Bayesian Learning algorithm in our upcoming webinar. Discover how machine learning and the Sparse Bayesian Learning algorithm are applied to analyze and predict site-specific Cone Penetration Test (CPT) data in Settle3. Join Steve Chai and Dr. Jianye Ching for a comprehensive session on leveraging advanced algorithms for insightful geotechnical data analysis.

Time: 11 AM Eastern Daylight Time

Key Highlights of the session:

      • The basic principle of the Sparse Bayesian Learning algorithm.
      • The practical applications of the algorithm.
      • The limitations of the algorithm.
      • Integration of the algorithm to predict site-specific CPT data.
      • Simulate CPT at any location with the existing CPT points.
      • Calculate empirical settlement (Schmertmann’s method) for the defined region with the simulated CPT points.
