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.
XSite is a powerful three-dimensional hydraulic fracturing
numerical simulation program based on the Synthetic Rock Mass (SRM) and
Lattice methods. XSite is capable of modeling multiple
wellbores with multiple stages and clusters, including open-hole
completions and perforation tunnels. XSite resolves
general hydraulic fracture interaction, including propagation in
naturally fractured reservoirs with deterministically or stochastically
generated discrete fracture networks (DFNs). The models conduct fully
coupled hydro-mechanical simulations. Fluid flow is simulated as
fracture flow within the joint networks and as matrix flow within the
intact rock. Proppant transport and placement logic is included.
Proppant affects fracture closure and fracture conductivity. General
pumping schedules can be simulated with switching injected Newtonian or
power-law fluids. The borehole flow is coupled with the rest of the
model to determine distribution of fluid between multiple clusters.
Synthetic microseismicity can be tracked and recorded.
