Dr. Petersen has experience in the analysis and design of underground excavations for occupancy, science facilities, transit and mining.
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. Lorig has more than 35 years of experience in engineering projects requiring specialized geomechanics consulting. His area of expertise is in the application of numerical models to provide solutions to stability, support and dynamics problems in civil and mining engineering.
The THC an expandable multi-channel (up to 36 channels) system which
provides the trigger and hit count logic during acoustic emission (AE)
monitoring and testing.
The hit-count analysis provides the number of threshold crossings
counted per channel over a specified period. These user specified
parameters (for example. the number of channels that need to be hit
before a trigger is generated, the trigger threshold value and timing
window etc.) are setup and controlled within our InSite-Lab data
acquisition software modules.
The unit is software controlled over the PC USB interface.
