Mr. Christianson has more than 40 years of experience in the development and application of numerical models in geomechanics and mining engineering. He also is experienced in the installation and data analysis for various rock-stress and displacement measuring devices.
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. Detournay has experience in the development of numerical models for application to coupled fluid-thermo-mechanical problems. She is a principal developer for the groundwater-flow and thermal logic in FLAC3D, and has been involved in the development of several of the constitutive models available with Itasca continuum codes.
