Solving Seismic/Liquefaction Problems Using FLAC and FLAC3D

**A dynamic model of a pulse wave – originating from a tunnel.

Itasca is offering a focused training session with instruction by experienced engineering consultants, hands-on modeling exercises, and open discussion with other attendees regarding best practices.

This course is best suited for someone with basic knowledge of FLAC or FLAC3D.

NOTE: To assure you get the most out of these three days, we will supply you with training information and exercises upon your registration. New users or those needing a refresher before attending will benefit by reviewing this material in advance of the course.

Topics to be covered during the course include:

Dynamic Modeling using FLAC and FLAC3D

  • Best practices for dynamic modeling
  • Grid generation tools for dynamic models (Building blocks, Griddle)
  • Dynamic Boundary conditions (Quiet vs Free-field)
  • Ground Motion Processing
  • Damping
  • Accounting for inertial effect of water
  • Examples: Pile supported wharf, Vertical shaft, Underground Tunnel
  • Basics of Liquefaction
  • Finn-Byrne model
  • P2P-Sand model
  • NorSand model
  • Examples: Evaluation of liquefaction remediation options using 3D analyses

This is a “hands-on” training. Each attendee should have a laptop with administrative rights. A temporary USB license key will be provided to each attendee for use during training.

We have negotiated reduced rates at Crowne Plaza LA Harbor. You will receive further information after registering.

Lunch will be provided each day.
