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.
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.
KATS (Kinematic Analysis Tools for Slopes) is a tool developed by
Itasca that assesses instabilities caused by day-lighting wedges
and planar failures formed when different structural sets interact with
the orientation of a given slope. KATS main application is for bench-berm scale analysis, which is understood as a first
step in the mining slope design process for moderate and competent rock
masses. It is also possible to perform a kinematic analysis in
Unlike other tools currently available on the geotechnical analysis market, through a single automated process KATS performs
a probabilistic or deterministic assessment of the behavior of a large
number of slope configurations defined by many structural domains and
many orientations and geometries of the slope. The results from the
analysis can be provided using a variety of parameters, such as loss of
crest, spill lengths, bench face angle distribution, etc. All these
results allow a geometric definition of the interramp angles (IRA) that
achieve the acceptability criteria defined by the operation from the
point of view of stability and safety of personnel and equipment.
