Ms. Patrin is the Senior Accountant at Itasca, providing financial project management and supervising daily accounting operations.
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. Harris assists the CFO and Financial Manager in contract management. He also provides administrative assistance for Itasca’s consulting engineers and is Itasca’s Safety Officer.
Methodologies for the collection of hydrogeologic and geochemical data vary, as do the ways those data are managed and presented. Itasca offers consulting services to customize solutions that meet each client’s needs related to the management and presentation of hydrogeologic and geochemical data.
Itasca developed the customizable Itasca Hydrologic Observation Dataviewer (IHOD), which is a QGIS (previously known as Quantum GIS) plug-in that merges high-level database input/output with tools in order to view hydrogeologic and geochemical data. It was developed to interact directly with underlying databases to retrieve data and provide users with intuitive access to those data in graphical and tabular formats that can be readily integrated into the user's work flow. QGIS is a free, open-source geographic information system (GIS) that provides a simple graphical platform to interact with a database management system. IHOD combines various tools that have been developed by Itasca and uses QGIS' extensive libraries to generate graphics, interact with database management systems, provide file input/output, and perform numerical and statistical analyses.
IHOD was developed specifically for groundwater data management with the following key features.
Itasca has the latest version of Ctech Development Corporation’s EVS-PRO (now Earth Volumetric Studio), a powerful software application that is used for data analysis, visualization, and animation. This software incorporates three-dimensional gridding (including kriging), geostatistics, visualization and analysis of three-dimensional environmental data with EVS, geologic modeling, volumetric rendering and analysis, general GIS display capabilities, and more. It is well-suited to the presentation of data for site assessments, financial and remediation planning, litigation support, regulatory reporting, and public relations.
Itasca has successfully completed litigation projects using the EVS software to demonstrate geologic structures and extents of chemicals in soil and groundwater. Itasca uses the modular, customizable structure of EVS for the presentation of all types of geospatial (e.g., hydrologic, geochemical, geomechanical, and geophysical) data. The company has extensive experience using EVS for conveying data trends in time and space and for presenting comprehensive site models and complex datasets.
In addition to EVS, Itasca uses other software applications (e.g., Leapfrog, Surfer, and AutoCAD) to develop complex, three-dimensional, geologic models that can be used as inputs for groundwater flow models or as a platform for the illustration of contaminant concentrations and other environmental data. Itasca has also developed tools for presenting complex hydrogeologic data, such as pore-pressure distributions extracted from groundwater models. Itasca works with clients to find (or develop) the tools that are best suited for their data-presentation needs.
The following are the core services offered in data management and presentation:
