Mr. Emam has developed numerical models to investigate the relationship between the packing history of granular systems, their geometry and micro-mechanical parameters, and their large-scale mechanical properties (elastic moduli, friction angle, dilatancy, etc.).
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 upcoming 70th annual Highway Geology Symposium will be held in Portland, Oregon, October 21st through October 24th, 2019.
Dr. Chéng is a geomechanics engineer with academic background in numerical modeling and geotechnical engineering, and is a licensed Professional Engineer in California. He has research experience in the coupling of porous media and fluids, liquefaction models, and soil and rock mechanics.
