Dr. Fairhurst, BSME, DEA, PhD, obtained his BSME degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, Institute of Technology, Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA) in 1983 and obtained his DEA and PhD in Mining Technologies from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris, in Fontainebleau, France in 1984 and 1987, respectively.
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.
Mr. Fuenzalida is a geomechanics engineer with experience in underground mine design and numerical modeling. He has experience in researching the fragmentation process in the gravity flow of caved rock under deep conditions using physical modeling. He also has numerical modeling experience in the plan and design of cave mines.

Ms. Bouzeran is an engineer in the geotechnical and mechanical engineering fields. She has experience in the application of numerical models to assess the stability of underground excavations and surface structures under static and seismic loading in the framework of civil and mining engineering.
She has participated in the development and application of an advanced bolt model (called ‘hybrid bolt’) in Itasca’s three-dimensional distinct element code 3DEC for simulation of ground support performance in highly fractured and bulked rock masses.
She also has used a micro-macro distinct element approach for evaluating the influence of joints on rock mass properties and has analyzed fractured rock masses by simulating large-scale tests (based on the SRM methodology developed by Itasca). Her modeling experience encompasses the use of several Itasca programs, including PFC3D, FLAC, 3DEC, FLAC3D, and Griddle.
