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.
MINEDW is a three-dimensional (3D), finite-element,
groundwater flow program that was developed specifically for mining
applications. MINEDW is used worldwide to design dewatering or
depressurization systems, predict local and regional environmental
impacts of mine dewatering, assist in the design of water-supply
systems, simulate the infilling of a “pit lake” after mining ceases, and
estimate pore-pressure distributions within highwalls for geotechnical
design purposes. Its user friendly graphical interface with pre- and
post-processing functionality provides a powerful numerical modeling
MINEDW is used at more than 50 mines throughout the world for
mining-related applications in diverse hydrogeologic and climatic
Developed from FEMFLOW3D,
MINEDW was validated by Sandia National Laboratories in 1998 and has
been used at more than 50 mines world wide in diverse hydrogeologic and
