FLAC3D TM is a numerical modeling code for advanced geotechnical analysis of soil, rock,
and structural support in three dimensions. FLAC3D is used in analysis, testing, and
design by geotechnical, civil, and mining engineers. It is designed to accommodate any
kind of geotechnical engineering project where continuum analysis is necessary.
The training course provides hands-on learning of the FLAC3D modelling code software
used internationally by companies and research organisations.
This FLAC3D V7.0 training course accommodates new and experienced users. It will be
mainly based on examples that attendees will develop and run by themselves to better
grasp the mechanics of using FLAC3D V7.0, the key underlying calculation principles and
the spectrum of available features. Attendees are encouraged to bring one of their specific
cases that may be discussed.
L O C A T I O N
The training course will be held at Itasca’s UK office in Shrewsbury, a short walk from the town centre and many fine hotels, bars and restaurants.
Shrewsbury is within 1hr 30min drive from Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool airports and has frequent rail links to all major UK cities.

Participants are urged to install the latest release of the software prior to class.
I N S T R U C T O R
Dr. Camusso is a civil engineer with over seven years of experience in geotechnical and rock mechanics. Most of Dr. Camusso’s numerical modelling expertise comes
from using Itasca's FLAC and FLAC3D codes.
