This course provides an overview of the capabilities and features in UDEC and 3DEC and covers software fundamentals with discussions on the theoretical background, basic concepts, and modeling principles for geotechnical analysis, mining, and petroleum engineering.

Topics include:

  • model building,
  • application of initial and boundary conditions,
  • constitutive (material) models,
  • solving, monitoring, and visualizing results.

Advanced topics such as ground support, groundwater flow, and the built-in scripting language (FISH) also will be introduced.

This is “hands-on” training, and exercises with UDEC or 3DEC are provided throughout the course.

For problem-solving sessions, the class will be split between UDEC and 3DEC users.

A laptop computer with administrative rights is required.
