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.

Itasca Consultants S.A.S. (ICSAS) was created in 1991 and is based in Lyon, France. With help from its subsidiaries in Germany, Spain, and Sweden, it serves the European Union market. The four European Geomechanics offices combine their expertise to offer a wide range of services in the area.
Work is performed mostly in two fields: Fractured Rock Engineering and Civil Engineering.
Itasca Consultants develops methods and contributes strongly to Research & Development programs for understanding fractured rock environments, through the study of Discrete Fracture Networks, and of their consequences in terms of rock mass macroscopic mechanical and hydraulic properties. These advances contribute to nuclear waste repository safety, and to the design of advanced mining methods. They are funded by a mix of private, state, and European stakeholders.
In the Civil Engineering field, Itasca Consultants helps Itasca software clients build models, builds models for them, or performs the complete modeling sequence—including interpretation. Models range from the very simple (where our experience with the codes yields very fast and low-cost answers) to the highly sophisticated (with very complex geometries, phasing, and coupling effects).
