Dr. Aglawe is a mining engineer with experience in rock mechanics (hard and soft rock) and in application of advanced numerical modeling for mining and civil projects. He has been involved in the development of models for tunnels, caverns and dams in hydroelectric projects.
FLAC3D TMis 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.
This FLAC3D V7.0 training course accommodates new and experienced users. It will be 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.
The Fifth International Itasca Symposium will be held at the University of Vienna (Austria). The Symposium will features the application of Itasca software for solving engineering and scientific challenges in geomechanics, hydrogeology, microseismicity, and more.
Mr. Ukey provides administrative support to our office and is involved in software sales. He is the first contact for software sales.

- Itasca R&D Center (HIC) is a joint venture formed by three
parties: HydroChina Engineering Corporation, Itasca International Inc.,
and the Chinese Academy of Science. HIC is located in Hangzhou, a city
on the eastern coast of China, some 45 minutes by high-speed train from
HIC is currently working on two world class projects: the Jinping
Underground Research Laboratory (URL) and the Baihetan Hydropower Plant.
The existing facility at the Jinping II Project provides great access
to the core area of Jinping Mountain, at a depth of 2400 m below the
surface. A deep underground research laboratory for dark-matter study
already has been built and is in operation. The laboratory for rock
mechanics research is planned to start with access construction in
mid-2011. HIC will act as the primary research team for this URL's
Baihetan is the 2nd largest hydropower plant in China, just after
Three Gorges in terms of power generation capacity. This project can be
ranked #1 in China from a rock mechanics perspective considering the
complexity of geological formation and the size of facilities. One of
the challenges comes from construction of the underground facility. Six
surge chambers with diameters close to 60 m are planned to be built at a
depth of 500 m below surface. The chambers will be excavated in basalt
flows, which raise several types of rock mechanics problems that will
need to be solved.
