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.
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.
Anya is a geotechnical engineer with experience coordinating and conducting field work ranging from geologic mapping to core logging and soil analysis. Additionally, she has experience processing field data to characterize the rock masses according to a number of classification systems.
Itasca’s engineers have wide experience working on earthquake engineering, microseismic measurement and analyses, and explosive and impulsive loading; Itasca’s commercial software is the best available for dynamic modeling for engineering design, factor of safety prediction, research and testing, and back-analysis of failure. The finite volume strength reduction method (FV-SRM) approach can incorporate structural elements for soil-structure interaction, hydrodynamic effects, and groundwater pore pressure and flow for time-dependent pore pressure change associated with liquefaction. Itasca uses the most advanced 2D liquefaction constitutive models available (UBCSand and PM4Sand) and has developed a new 3D liquefaction constitutive mode, P2PSand, that is based on standard soil property data.
