Mr. Wang is a senior geomechanics engineer with experience in mining engineering and geotechnical engineering. His research involves numerical modeling and simulation, and has involved projects related to sheet-pile walls with retained slope, mine-void detection using geophysical methods and stability of underground mines.
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.
Christine Swann is Financial Manager of Itasca Consulting Group.
Itasca is experienced in estimating the dewatering needs of a construction site or mine to temporarily lower groundwater levels below the natural groundwater level, in all seasons, to provide for safe excavation construction and working environment during operations. Itasca also predicts dewatering rates, performing numerical modeling to estimate dewatering and to design and optimize the dewatering and water-disposal systems, drain holes, and monitoring wells for tunnels, caverns, foundations, and construction sites.
