Dr. Garza-Cruz is a geomechanics engineer with a background in mechanical engineering and numerical modeling. She has experience in the application of numerical models to assess the stability of mining excavations, surface subsidence, stope-back behavior, re-evaluation of underground mining method, primary fragmentation, as well as to understand the creep behavior of excavations in frozen ground.
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. Fairhurst obtained his Ph.D. in Mining Engineering from the University of Sheffield, UK in 1955. He joined the University of Minnesota faculty, School of Mines and Metallurgy, in 1956, serving as Head for several years until 1970, when the Mining program was joined with Civil Engineering to form the Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering. He was Head of the joint Department from 1973-87, and retired in 1997.
InSite-LiteTM is the free version of Itasca Consulting Ltd’s InSite Seismic Processor with limited functionality and features. Some real-life examples, from ICL's consulting projects, are provided in the 'Demo projects' page for a quick-start in the use of InSite and evaluation of this trial version. The list of tools available in each version of the InSite suite can be found in the table at the bottom of this page. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss upgrading to include any of the functionalities not available in the Lite version.

InSite is an integrated seismic data processing, QC, management and visualisation software. It has been developed as a complete software solution for seismological studies, ranging in scale from acoustic emissions in the laboratory, through microseismics around underground excavations and petroleum fields up to regional-scale earthquakes. InSite is designed to work with most standard and commercial seismic data formats, both for raw and processed data.
