Evaluation of impacts of lahars on structures using DEM numerical modeling
Jan 19, 2021

Lahars represent natural phenomena that can generate severe damage in densely populated urban areas. The evaluation of pressures generated by these mass flows on constructions (buildings, infrastructure…) is crucial for civil protection and assessment of the structures’ vulnerability. The existing tools developed to model the spread of flows at large scale in densely populated urban areas remain inaccurate in the estimation of mechanical efforts.

WEBINAR: What’s New in 3DEC Version 7
Dec 1, 2020

This webinar is for people who have used 3DEC before and are interested in the latest developments.

Webinar: Simulating Hydraulic Fracturing in Jointed Rock using XSite
Nov 12, 2020

This webinar will demonstrate setting-up a hydraulic fracturing model in jointed rock using XSite. An overview of XSite and a discussion of the simulation results will also be discussed.

WEBINAR: 3DEC 7.0 for Beginners
Nov 10, 2020

This webinar is for people who are new or occasional 3DEC users, or those just interested in learning more about it.

Using Rigid Blocks in PFC
Oct 15, 2020

This webinar provides a brief overview of PFC modeling using convex rigid blocks, including example applications ranging from rock-mass behavior to granular flow, and highlights important tip and tricks and modeling challenges.

Discrete element modeling of masonry structures
Mar 26, 2020

The webinar describes a promising approach which is able to represent the discrete nature of masonry by the Discrete Element Method (DEM).

The Art of Numerical Modelling in Geomechanics
Feb 27, 2020

Presented by Dr. Peter A. Cundall: Numerical modeling is widely used in Geomechanics for design and diagnostic purposes, but there is an art to using the software tools correctly. It's not just a case of plugging in the data, and hitting "run". We need to understand the underlying physics, and whether the model properly represents it.

How to Create an Hybrid Mesh by Combining BlockRanger and Griddle
Dec 19, 2019

The webinar shows how to generate a hybrid mesh of a tunnel system consisting of three tunnels intersecting each other by combining the use of BlockRanger and Griddle. The advantages of this type of mesh is discussed by illustrating a coupled hydro-mechanical simulation of the tunnel excavations.
